A Live, 12-Webinar Series to Improve Basic Church Management Literacy

The Center for Church Management offers a Certificate Program in a webinar series. Twelve live, online seminars provide a high-level overview of church management elements for busy pastors, priests, business managers and other church administrators. Listen and view presentations from experts on topics ranging from website design and legal issues to parish security and pastoral planning.

The webinar series is designed to help church leaders of all denominations deal with common temporal problems. Webinar participants will learn how to use resources as effectively as possible to meet their ministry goals. Most webinar topics can be further explored through additional webinars available through Villanova’s resources.

To earn a Certificate in Church Management from the Villanova Center for Church Management, attendees must attend all 12 webinars and complete a 3-5 page paper for each webinar session, applying the webinar material to their church management situation. Each paper must be submitted within two weeks of the conclusion of the webinar session.
