Praxis Ministry Academy (PMA) exists as a school of adult education, primarily for lay people, to provide foundational training in biblical and doctrinal studies, church ministry skills and leadership skills so they may be better prepared to do the “work of the ministry” (Ephesians 4:12). A PMA certificate does not confer any ministerial status.

Benefits include:

  • Study the Bible and ministry with an experienced ministry practitioner and other evangelical-minded Christians involved in church ministry 
  • Critically work through a selection of the quality foundational study materials produced by the Evangelical Training Association (ETA) and receive ETA credits for completed modules
  • Open new doors for ministry and more advanced studies at other institutions

The Praxis Course was great! I’m really enjoying it as it allows you to share what you know, but also to gain new information. It is also great to see that the things you know and have been doing have some biblical and academic backing.” Blessing, Praxis student 2017/18
