Webinar Series

Church Management Certificate Webinar Series

The Center for Church Management & Business Ethics, in partnership with Our Sunday Visitor and AmericanChurch, Inc., is offering the Church Management Certificate Program webinar series. The series of 12 web seminars is designed to allow busy pastors, priests, business managers and other church administrators to participate without having to leave the privacy of their home or office.

Attendees will hear presentations and view materials from national experts on topics ranging from website design and legal issues to parish security and pastoral planning. Those attendees who attend all 12 webinars and complete the additional coursework will receive a Certificate in Church Management from the Center for the Study of Church Management at Villanova University. The additional coursework consists of twelve 3-5 page papers, one for each webinar session, in which participants must apply the material covered in the webinar session to their church management situation. The paper must be submitted within two weeks of the conclusion of the webinar session.

The webinar series is designed to help church leaders of all denominations deal with common temporal problems. Webinar participants will learn how to use those resources as effectively as possible to meet their ministry goals. Most of the topics can be expanded into more detail through additional webinars. Individuals who are not concerned with earning a Certificate in Church Management may register for only those webinar sessions that they find to be of interest.
