The Certificate in Managing Non-Profit Organizations (6 modules) seeks to build the capacity of the Christian non-profit organization in management and effective stewardship of their organization. It is designed for non-profit practitioners seeking shorter training in leading and managing non-profit organizations.
The Certificate in Professional Christian Fundraising (8 modules) is an eight-Saturday module program aimed at building the capacity of the non-government organization in resource development and mobilization. Fundraisers learn to develop godly stewards who practice stewardship, generous living, and kingdom-focused giving.
As a response to the growing need for ministerial equipping, certificate courses were designed to meet the training needs of pastors and church leaders within their own location at the quickest possible time and at an economical cost. These 10-module programs are designed with core and elective modules according to their respective foci. These courses are suitable for local ministerial and pastoral fellowships, Christian organizations, denominations, and ATS alumni chapter fellowships. Special arrangements can be made for groups outside Metro Manila.
