The graduate-level Certificate in Hispanic Ministry is a program designed to prepare those who are already working or are interested in doing so in the context of Hispanic communities anywhere in the United States or beyond. The Certificate is for those who do not desire a full degree or for those who have completed a graduate theology or ministry degree, but who wish to concentrate further in Hispanic ministry.
