High school students who wish to become church clergy members may benefit from enrolling in a Christian-centered degree program. For example, Mount Vernon Nazarene University (MVNU) offers an educational program that is designed for 21st century church leaders, called i21, according to the school.
The purpose of i21 is to teach enrollees the skills that are necessary to become Christ-like disciples. Officials from MVNU say that the Institute of 21st Century Church Leadership aims to help participants develop qualities of Christianity and holiness.
Graduates of this program can develop skills that can help them fulfill their mission, as well as skills in conflict management.
In addition, MVNU is adjusting tuition to make i21 as accessible to as many people as possible. Many churches allot funds for pastors who wish to enroll in the program.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, overall employment of clergy members is expected to increase over the next several years.
