You've already studied to be an effective pastor, now build your capacity to run a successful nonprofit--your church.
If you want to lead effective discipleship that transforms lives, we can help give you the knowledge to do it. Thanks to a partnership with ASU Lodestar Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Innovation, The Episcopal Diocese of Arizona has developed a nonprofit management graduate/executive level certificate program: Best Skills Best Churches that covers what seminary didn't teach you. This is a holistic program; each session feeds into the next and is of particular use in the application of managing churches. Graduates earn a Certificate in Nonprofit Management.
Six classes cover volunteers, laws/legal, human relations, marketing, financial management, and fundraising.
Courses are one each month, beginning November, 2019, and ending in April, 2020. One track for priest and pastors runs on Thursdays, another track for deacons and lay leaders runs on Saturdays. The cost is $485 and includes lunch and all course materials.
