Choose Your Path

At Horizon we are guided by the conviction that Christ is continually calling leaders to advance God’s Kingdom. We recognize that Christian leadership takes different forms, and our programs follow different paths to prepare leaders called to different areas of Christian life and ministry.

Our programs follow two paths. One path leads you to professional, credentialed ministry. The other path aims to establish your personal Christian life, preparing you to lead for Christ whatever your vocation or context. Those who take our one-year Certificate program can join either program path, or it can serve as a stand-alone, unique experience.
