This is a list of the courses that are currently under development.  There is a core of 16 courses that reflect what we see as the universal core needed for ministerial development.  The remaining 8 are open to be adjusted according to the needs of a particular school.  Our hope is to have a large range of alternate courses that could be substituted for those remaining 8 developed and posted on this site.  Our first task is to get the core courses written and put into a module form.

  1. Nilo V. Rosende, Central Visayas District says:

    If accepted in the Philippine context, as far as i remember the former ordination required units total of 90 units. Now, these 24 COS is total of 72 units. Does it mean to be ordain you need only 72 units? That is to qualify for ordination? Thank you.

    • equip-admin says:

      Yes, if the Regional COS is adopted the student can be qualified for ordination – in terms of their educational requirements by finishing these 24 classes. The minimum standard is 3 years of full time equivalent study at a Bachlor’s level. These classes meet that minimum standard.
