Origins Matter

Origins Matter is an innovative program of study designed to equip current and future Christian leaders with practical tools to effectively influence their world with the truths of Scripture. A formal college degree is not required, and those who can benefit from these programs include, but are not limited to, Christian men and women who hold various positions of influence within the community—educators, ministers and church leaders, business and industry experts, professionals in medicine and law, government officials, leaders in the fine arts, and high school and college students.

Designed for people on the go, the Origins Matter Short Course is a self-paced program that can fit into busy schedules. Course material is accessed online and by reviewing DVDs, so students can study from any computer with an Internet connection. The certificate program has been designed to be completed in a matter of weeks (5 units in 5 weeks, or 10 units in 10 weeks), but busier students may prefer a slower pace.
