Missional Ministry Tracks

For certification:  Individuals pursuing formal certification through their LCMS district or other ministry organization may be directed to complete all or part of the training through MTC. Listed below are the course tracks set down by several entities. Be sure to meet with the entity who will be certifying you prior to applying to MTC so that you can 1) understand their program, 2) ensure the courses listed below are still accurate, and 3) complete their application process, as it is generally separate from MTC’s. If you have any questions, please contact us or the entity that will be certifying you.

For Individual Learning & Growth:  Individuals (church members, Sunday School teachers, Bible study leaders, Elders, Deacons, Adult Confirmands) may take MTC courses for their own edification and growth. Several focused tracks are suggested below but anyone may take any non-cohort MTC class anytime it is offered for any reason! If you have any questions, please contact us.
