4/14 Movement

In partnership with the 4/14 Academy, Reaching a Generation Leadership Academy will award up to 77 credits for prior learning to our Christian Leadership Occupational Certificate to 4/14 Academy learners who successfully complete specified 4/14 Academy courses and collections. This is equivalent to roughly one-third of the certificate, which means a 30% reduction in our certificate’s tuition costs.

Through the 4/14 Academy RaGLA Academic Credit Program, learners will grow as ministry leaders by taking free courses on the 4/14 Academy:

1
Understanding the need, urgency, and biblical command for teaching God’s word to children and youth.
2
Building integral skills necessary to develop, lead, guide, and support their ministries for the flourishing of children and youth in the 21st century.
3
Identifying strengths, weaknesses, and areas for growth within their own ministries.
4
Identifying practical next steps to apply what they are learning in their coursework into their ministries.

Learners may earn up to 77 occupational learning credits from RaGLA by completing:

  • Levels 1, 2, 3, and 4 of the Next Gen Ministry Program within the 4/14 Academy
