The Certification Process
and the The Church Network Code of Ethics
are available on the TCN website. Decide which training center you plan to attend. Factors to consider: date; denomination (all centers are open to applicants of any Christian denomination); location; cost (the PT&S Committee does not regulate the registration fee charged by the training centers, and it does vary); transportation to and from the seminar and lodging while attending the seminar (if attending in person modules). (Seminars are usually held during breaks from regular classes at the centers, lodging is sometimes available in dormitories at the centers). Once you have made your decision, registration can be found here.
Register for entering the certification program by sending registration form with your check for one hundred dollars ($100) to the national office. Remember your CEU count (see item 4.) does not start until this form is submitted. Denominational leaders should submit the Document of Denominational Leadership at the time of registration to insure qualification.
Begin your academic work and your project. Report on progress, including CEU work, to The Church Network.
Provide recommendation forms to your senior pastor and lay leader which should be sent to the national office by the February 1 deadline.
By Feb 1 of the year you expect to receive certification by The Church Network, send your Application for Certification Form and one hundred dollars ($100) for members, or four hundred dollars ($400) application fee for non-members, along with the application.
As a certification applicant, you are expected to take the full initiative for planning, seeking approval, and implementing all that is necessary for certification, including submitting all forms and fees to the The Church Network. If you have any questions, please contact the National Office.
Begin your academic work and your project. Report on progress, including CEU work, to The Church Network. Your training center will report your completion of the 2 required modules (A & B). You are responsible for reporting your CEU progress.
The Church Network CEU’s are available at the annual
national conference, the training centers, regional events, chapter CEU program and through The Church Network’s Registered Provider Network.
