Certification and Licensing
The Associate of Arts in Church Ministries provides the basic educational background and training in ministry, Bible, and theology required for more effective church ministry. This program helps students fulfill the education requirements for certification, licensing, and ordination with the Assemblies of God (students should always consult with their district or network leadership for full requirements).
My name is Blue Sky. I am currently enrolled in the Associates of Arts in Church Ministries program with Global University. Ever since I graduated high school in 2018, it has been a dream to go to college, but it didn’t seem possible. I decided to enroll in this program because I never had the opportunity to be part of a school without being thousands of dollars in debt. This new program has been a fantastic opportunity. I have completed two courses, but I have learned so much already and feel closer to God because of my studies … I look forward to learning more and working towards my goals.
