The Greystone Certificate


The six-course and thesis Certificate (in Christian Dogmatics, Christian Tradition, or Holy Scripture) is a rigorous program designed for ministers and theological students who desire to gain specialist knowledge of the Christian Scriptures, theology, and history from the perspective of confessional Reformed catholicity. The Certificate is complementary to traditional seminary training for ministry and scholarship, and well suited for a range of students seeking continuing education, training for further research, or refreshment in theological study. Particularly with its focus on training for further work in biblical, theological, and ethical studies, the Certificate functions in manner analogous to a Master of Theology (Th.M. or M.Th.) program in American and international institutions. The goal of the program is to foster and stimulate constructive theological thinking and multidisciplinary collaboration.

Program Features

Certificate courses are offered across the range of biblical, theological, and historical studies, and taught by the Greystone fellows and visiting lecturers. Students enjoy access to the physical and electronic library resources at Greystone as well as the library resources of our institutional partners.

Greystone consciously endeavors to blend rigorous study with times of fellowship, hospitality, and prayer, and are thus designed principally for residential study. However, all modules are also available for online students and for auditors at Greystone Connect.

Certificate courses are also regularly offered in connection with Greystone’s moral theology initiative, the Center for the Study of Ethics and Technology (CSET), and with Greystone’s Lydia Center for Women and Families.

Greystone courses qualify as credit courses in Master’s degree programs for some institutions. Students should consult with their institution’s registrar to learn if a Greystone course qualifies.


Tuition is $1050 per course ($99 per course for auditors). Students are encouraged to inquire with local and regional church bodies for possible scholarship or tuition assistance.

Until further notice, travel and food costs will be the responsibility of the student. Requests for lodging should be submitted via for information on hospitality options.
