> How does the Church Management Series webcast program work?

The series consists of twelve 90-minute web seminars, designed to help pastors, staff, and leadership of all religious denominations. If you have a computer with speakers and internet access, you can join the webcasts from anywhere!

> When are the webcasts presented?
The live webcasts are presented at 2 pm Eastern on the date scheduled. If you are unavailable at that time, you’ll have access to the on-demand recording of the session to watch at your convenience.

> Are the webcasts interactive?

Yes. Participants can ask questions and share insights through a designated Q&A section on the webcast screen, even if you are watching the on-demand recording!

> What are the requirements to earn a certificate in Church Management?

Participants must pay the $899 course fee ($825 for each additional participant from the same organization), watch all 12 webcasts, and submit and pass the required coursework for each webcast. Coursework consists of a three-to-five page paper, graded on a pass/not pass basis.
