PROGRAM OPPORTUNITIES

We believe that successful ministry leaders not only need experiential training; it is important for them to grow spiritually, socially, and educationally. At The Healing Place College, you’ll receive exceptional training and instruction from our pastors and staff so you’ll be fully equipped with the knowledge you need when you enter into your dream position. At The Healing Place College, we offer two different program options to fit your specific needs: Certificate and Degree. Whatever walk of life you’re currently in, we’ve got an option for you.

1. THP COLLEGE CERTIFICATE OF MINISTRY

PERSONAL GROWTH

We don’t know everything but we strive to learn as much as possible. Our desire is to be people of integrity, to be teachable to those above and around us, and to grow daily in discipline. We never “arrive” but keep growing until the day Jesus returns.

PUNCTUALITY

Time is a gift that is only given once, so make the most of it. If you are early, you are on time. If you are on time, you are late. Value not only your time, but also the time of those around you.

SPIRIT-LED

We understand that we will only be eternally successful if we submit to the power and direction of the Holy Spirit in our lives. We commit to allowing the Holy Spirit to do a complete work in our lives (Spirit, Mind, and Body).

BE PRESENT

You can’t grow and be effective if you aren’t where you need to be. Life will happen, but you choose if you are “checked in” or “checked out” wherever you are. People are depending on you to be present (physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually) wherever you have committed to be.

LOVE & SERVICE

“Love God, Love People, Serve God, Serve People.” As members of THP College, we will be defined by our Love and Service to God and the People He places in our path. This should be reflected in both your personal and public life.

EXCELLENCE

God gave us His best, so we ought to give our best back to Him in everything we do (Colossians 3:23). When we view all assigned tasks as reflecting our devotion for God, our very best is the expectation. We take responsibility, provide solutions and not just questions, initiate change, and make things happen.

COMMUNITY

Community is only as effective as those committed to it. We are committed to Christ-like community displayed by Jesus Christ and commanded by God in His Word. We will support and encourage one another, challenge one another, celebrate with one another, and “do life” with one another. We are a community, a family, not simply individuals pursuing different paths.
