Fulfill your vision through taking one of the Pillar Academy of Continuing Education (P.A.C.E) certificate programs offered by Pillar College.

A unique aspect of Pillar Academy of Continuing Education (P.A.C.E) certificate programs is that they begin with you. We do not offer a one-size-fits-all program. We begin by finding out how you are wired to lead and serve, and then we encourage you to enroll in one of our courses. We currently offer the CCM (Certificate in Christian Ministry) program and the COL program (Certificate in Organizational Leadership), with many more certificate programs becoming available in the near future. The CCM program was designed to help you become a more effective leader in fulfilling your vision. The CCM program focuses on mastery of the Bible for personal growth and application in ministry to individuals and in groups.

The program meets for a total of 75 hours, the equivalent in seat-time requirements of 6 credits, which may be transferred into a Pillar College degree program without further expense. All courses begin with a three hour workshop to do self-inventory and exploration to ensure you are in the proper certificate program, and to gear up for a rigorous and invigorating journey into greater excellence in fulfilling your calling and vision.
