The Certification Program consists of two programs: a 12-sessions Christian Formation and the Ministry Training Programs. At the completion of both programs, Bishop or his designee presents a certificate which is valid for 3 years. The 12-session Christian Formation Program needs to be taken once only. A ministry installation is renewed by taking 12 hours of formation classes, where four are related to the specific ministry training. To attend any course in the Ministry Formation Training Program, it is required that the person has completed the Christian Formation Program.
