Re-Forma has developed 35 outcomes, which reflect what we believe pastors need to be able to know, do and be. Those providers who already have a curriculum, may only need to supplement their existing outcomes with any they have not done in the list below, while new providers will do all 35. In both cases, however, students need to show that they have successfully demonstrated all the outcomes before being awarded the Certificate of Biblical Training for Ministry.
The Re-Forma outcomes are available free of charge to any provider wanting its students to qualify for the Re-Forma Certificate, which is underwritten by the World Evangelical Alliance. Please note that this is not an accredited programme, but the Certificate provides an international standard for non-formal/informal training. If a provider already has a curriculum and its students have successfully demonstrated all Re-Forma’s outcomes, they will automatically qualify for the Certificate. If they have demonstrated only some of the outcomes, the provider will be required to supplement its curriculum with the missing outcomes to be able to fulfil the required outcomes.
The awarding of the Certificate will cost a nominal administration fee of $5 US per student, plus postage and packaging, in the developing world and $10 per student plus postage and packaging, elsewhere. Kindly note that no certificates will be issued without prior payment.
You will find helpful resources for many of the outcomes under the Useful Links tab.
