CFNI Online offers you the flexibility necessary to earn a Christian ministry degree at your own pace. You are a few clicks away from experiencing practical, Spirit-filled education designed with you in mind.


Earn credit toward a Bachelor’s, Associate’s or Biblical Studies Degree with online programs that have been modeled after our traditional degree plan.

Elevate your understanding by combining foundational knowledge of theology and basic principles of Christian ministry. You will learn from experienced ministers, missionaries, and other trained professionals from all over the world. The completion of 14 courses (8 required, 6 electives) will earn you a Certificate of Biblical Studies.

Expand on the foundational study from the certificate program (CBS) by furthering your education to complete the Associate of Practical Theology. You will receive a sound theological education through 12 elective courses that will deepen your exploration of the Bible and practical ministry. The completion of these courses along with the 14 courses from the CBS will earn you the Associate’s degree.

Get the most out of your CFNI Online education by completing a third program that features well-rounded training which allows you to hone in on specific areas of Christian ministry. After completing the CBS and APT programs, 14 additional elective courses will earn you the Bachelor of Practical Ministry.

The Advanced Studies Diploma is created for those who meet certain criteria, which allows you to bypass the completion of the CBS and APT programs and focus solely on the practical ministry portion of this Bachelors-adjacent degree. Through 14 elective courses, this program will advance your comprehension and training, helping you to enter the ministry field at a faster pace.
