Graduate Certificate in Spiritual Formation & Leadership

The Spiritual Formation & Leadership program at Johnson University provides a Graduate Certificate specifically for students who hold bachelor’s degrees in majors other than Bible or religious studies. The program deepens students’ spiritual lives and equips them to mentor churches and individuals toward spiritual formation.

Students will benefit from Johnson’s accreditation, affordable tuition, and an experienced and engaged faculty passionate about the long-term spiritual formation of each student. This certificate program is offered as a fully online program, though students may choose to enroll in elective courses that require a one-week stay at Johnson’s Tennessee campus.

When students complete this program, they will be able to do the following:

  • Actively and intentionally pursue spiritual formation in their own lives.
  • Exercise leadership in encouraging and facilitating spiritual formation in individuals and churches.
