Core Curriculum

2017 Curriculum

The Certificate In Ministerial Studies (CIMS) is a curriculum through the School of Ministry of 20 courses, offering 35 CIMS credits, to prepare ministers and laity for relevant ministry. The CIMS curriculum is comprised of 490, 30-minute video lessons presented by outstanding leaders and teachers in the Church of God.

Two credit options for study:

CIMS credit:  To receive credit for course work, students must enroll, register for each course, pay for tuition (unless a grant is awarded), and pass the exams with a score of 70. At the option of Church of God institutions of higher education, CIMS credit may be converted to credit by that institution when the student meets the entrance requirements, is accepted, and enrolls.

Non-CIMS credit:  Students may complete any portion of studies for personal enrichment by purchasing DVDs, study guides, and textbooks. Courses may be used by pastors for Bible classes, leadership training, or sermon preparation. Proficiency exams are available if CIMS credit is later desired.
