About United Christian College

In response to the growing needs of the denomination and the Presiding Prelate’s vision for revitalizing ministries to all Christian leaders: a new program called the Leadership Training Program (LTP) has been developed. The LTP will expand the current curriculum offered through the Southern District’s MTP and include a general course track for any leader in the church in addition to a specialized track for clergy leadership.

Program Purpose

The purpose of the United Christian College Leadership Training Program is to offer a 36 hour (one year) virtual platform for learning that guides students to an understanding of the basic doctrines of the Christian faith and a conviction of their validity in the life of modern men and women. Designed for substantive and critical study, collaborative learning, and active engagement in ministry, the program builds upon (Ephesians 4:12) to equip the saints for the work of ministry and build up the body of Christ.
