Each year students will be evaluated on their progress in ministry. This will be with a local church board when holding a local ministers license and with The District Board of Ministry when holding a district license. The purpose of examination is accountability and clarification.
The Church of the Nazarene requires students to complete 25 courses of ministry. The courses consist of theology, ministry, evangelism, and church history. For a complete listing of courses required click below.
Those enrolled in the School of Ministry will be expected to put into practice what they are learning. They should have a specific area of ministry leadership that demonstrates the calling of God on their lives.
