"BUSINESS" must no
longer be a Dirty Word
for churches and spiritual
services organizations!

Most ministers, priests, and rabbis,
entered the ministry in order to help
people....  If we had wanted to be
managers, CEO's, or accountants, we
would have pursued those career
paths instead!

However, fiscal management is
important -- although most parish
financial authority is help by the
trustees, the deacons, the district
office, or the bishop's headquarters
(Chancery).  Even so, if the parish
budget is in disarray, guess who is
going the be facing some stern questions from higher authority -- and we do not mean
God, in this case!

We offer some basic financial accountability lessons.  But, even more importantly,
OUR CERTIFIED PASTORAL MANAGEMENT program teaches pastors how to
work effectively with people.  This includes those who hold authority over your
church or synagogue...your peers...and those over whom you have supervisory
authority and responsibility.

Below, we offer a look at the entire curriculum for this ever-more-popular and
essential program.  The first cluster is comprised of core online Fast-Track courses
whereas the second grouping represents electives which include lessons from our
School of Business Administration, which specializes in the management of spiritual
institutions.  From this list, you would select ten lessons that you believe would be
helpful to you in your professional circumstances.

TUITION:  The tuition cost for
this program is $1,200.  We offer
a tuition payment financing
program at Zero Percent Interest.
No one will be turned away!
