Certificate in Missional Leadership Hesston College
Missional Leadership Certificate is an introduction to missional concepts and practices, as well as disciple-making. The certificate program is for those who seek particular emphasis in missional church and missional leadership and is open to students with any level of education. It is well-suited for people who either do not have the luxury of time or money for general education courses and simply want church leadership education and for those who already have a degree, including an M.Div.
Disciplemaker Learning Community Courses is a series of five courses (Relg 117, 118, 119, 218, and 219) that are part of the Missional Leadership Certificate Program. Students join a cohort group that goes through a series of courses together. Groups will be together for the duration of the program. They will also learn the regular rhythms of disciple-making. The discipleship portion of the DLC will serve as an example of discipleship groups each student will be expected to lead in their own context, simultaneously to their class formation. Prerequisite – acceptance into the Missional Leadership program.
Weekend College is a non-credit weekend-long educational experience for congregations and groups that focuses on specific topics. Weekend College offerings include:

- “Five-fold Church Leadership” or “5Q” – organizes the life and ministries of the church around the Ephesians 4 ministries: Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Shepherds (Pastors), and Teachers.
- Peacemaking and Justice – studies the biblical and theological foundation for nonviolence, peacemaking, and justice through a historical Anabaptist perspective, which uses the fullness of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection as a starting point for interpreting scripture, history, and ethics.
