Alliance Ministerial Study Program
The MSP has been developed primarily for people who are aware of the call of God to full-time ministry, but who are unable to obtain their training through traditional educational institutions. It is also used by many others who, through the guidance and approval of their District, desire a self-study and coaching approach to their ministry preparation.
Empower Ministry Certificate Program
EMPOWER is a developmental ministry certificate program designed by women for women, to move to the next level in their personal relationship with God and to walk in the fullness of their gifts and calling. The program is designed for women to receive biblical and theological training, enrich their own personal spiritual formation by dealing with issues of the heart, and process with other women in small mentoring groups. Women want to have a greater understanding of their purpose in life. Training in theology and spiritual formation helps women discover who they are and how they can activate their gifts and calling in God's redemptive work for all people. The Empower Program includes three courses: EMPOWERone, EMPOWERengage, EMPOWERproclaim. EMPOWERone is the first course that all women take. It is the ministry certificate program and EMPOWERengage and EMPOWERproclaim are advanced courses available to EMPOWERone certificate holders. EMPOWER is a developmental program in partnership with the Metro District of the C&MA and Alliance Theological Seminary for women to be equipped, motivated, and prepared to grow in ministry.
