The current Auxilary Manuals assignments for 1) the Christian Ministry Programs, 2) Pastoral Ministry Programs (Tier 1), and Church Growth Programs (Tier 2) meet accredited degree requirements. Students graduating in 2022 and beyond must now complete Auxiliary Manual assignments that match the proposed accredited programs.
