Certificate in Justice and Mission

Certificate in Justice and Mission

The newly created justice and mission certificate at Denver Seminary holds a distinct advantage over other programs. The certificate includes internship opportunities with active practitioners, leaders in the justice and mission community of Denver, most of whom are CEO’s of non-profits across the city.

While the internship isn’t mandatory, it allows you to explore your thoughts on a matter discussed in class while working side-by-side with someone who has been doing the work for decades.

The certificate is for any person with a passion for justice and mission. You might already be ministering and trying to think through the tough issues as you go or you want to prepare well for when you enter the field of active full-time ministry.

This certificate will provide leaders with:

  • A biblical foundation on which to evaluate issues of justice and mission.
  • Practical application of theoretical frameworks in coursework and/or internships.
  • Guidance from active practitioners, leaders, and CEO’s of non-profits living out justice and mission in very practical ways.
  • Practical skills and tools to lead, manage, and minister in increasingly complex ministries and mission fields.
