The Church of God Division of Education wants to recognize the interest and efforts of the Church of God ministers committed to a continuing process of learning, updating, and sharpening ministry skills to fulfill their calling with excellence. For this reason the DOE has carefully selected and produced online courses that bear denominational recognition and allow COG ministers to earn the annual Active-Learner Certificate.
In order to earn the annual Active-Learner Certificate (ALC), Church of God ministers must take six selected courses and attend a live webinar within a year. The ALC is renewable annually, so a different set of courses will be offered every year.
ALC courses have been developed to provide content that is biblically and theologically sound, relevant to present-ministry needs, and applicable to today’s ministry. Also, ALC courses have been designed to provide learning opportunities for the busy ministers who can access the courses at any time at their convenience and can take courses at their own pace.
In summary, the ALC provides the opportunity for Church of God minsters to engage in a continuing ministerial learning and development process, while at the same time, recognizes such efforts by providing a formal certification that has worldwide ministerial recognition within the denomination.
I hope you take advantage of this opportunity and enroll in the ALC.
