Certificate of
Spirit-Empowered Ministry



Oral Roberts University’s online Certificate of Spirit-Empowered Ministry program offers a study of ministry in biblical, historical and contemporary contexts. An online certificate is a unique academic award that requires less time and fewer credits than an undergraduate or graduate degree. It explores how church leadership builds teams, aligns functions, makes decisions and plans ministry. You will experience the power and presence of the Holy Spirit, grow in spiritual practices that enable you to work with teams, and reflect on how you might shape Spirit-Empowered Christianity in the 21st century through a life of healing and ministry.

In addition to this, our commitment to educating your whole person - mind, body, and spirit - can truly set you apart as a Spirit-empowered minister. You will apply what you learn to your family, church or ministry context. Students watch videos, dive into core textbooks, post to discussions, and complete practical projects. In addition, periodic live webinars allow students to learn in real-time from their instructor and peers.
