Executive Certificate in Faith Leadership

Practical. Personal. Powerful.

The Executive Certificate Program in Faith Leadership

Offered by The. Rev. Charlie Curb Center at Belmont University

The Executive Certificate Program in Faith Leadership is designed to provide faith leaders who are already serving in various ministerial roles, the tools needed to gain greater effectiveness in leadership by offering courses that will sharpen, equip, and update earlier educational experiences.  Over the course of 8 months, participants will study, reflect, and learn in a unique limited-cohort experience.  Classes will be held on the campus of Belmont University on the first Monday evening of each month, September through May, (with the exception of January).  Eight unique courses will be taught monthly in a 3 ½ format, throughout the fall and spring semesters. 

By design, the program is very practical in nature.  The courses listed below are all leadership focused providing both personal health and well-being insights, along with practical skill set development.  The program is also personal.  The cohort size is limited to 10 participants.  Part of the learning experience will be the building of new relationships and perspectives as the group moves through the coursework.  The program is also powerful.  Each participant will develop tools and insights, to aid not only in personal development, but in practical use in ministry.  The $499 tuition fee covers the entire 8-month program including materials, books, and other resources.  


Classes will be offered in the Spring and Fall every year on Monday evenings from 5:30 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. each week. Class sizes are limited to 20 and will be located in Jack Massey Hall 400.Tuition for the certificate is $499.
