Assignment and Payment Updates
 
 Students will be given an “Incomplete” if assignments are not turned in by the due dates set by the class instructor.  All “Incompletes” will become a “Failure” after 30 days from that date.  Late assignments will result in a full grade deduction in grade. 
 
Registrations will not be considered to be complete until full payment is made by a student or the student’s church.  The registration fee must be paid in full no later than two weeks after the date of the first class.  No student will be given a grade for any class unless the tuition is paid in full.  (If assistance is needed, we encourage all CMCs to get support from their local churches, when possible.)

SCHOOL OF MINISTRY SCHEDULE OBJECTIVE – The schedule is based on the Conference year running from Spring to Spring, with the view of CMCs completing course work for Spring ordination at Annual Conference.
 
TYPICAL CLASS DAYS/TIMES – Spring (April, May, June), Summer (July, August), Fall (September, October, November),
Winter (January, February, March) Classes are typically held one or two Saturdays of each month; meeting times may vary.
 
TYPICAL CLASS LOCATIONS – Locations may vary (most common are The Springs Church in Cedar Springs and The Woods in Stanwood.
 
COURSE REGISTRATION – These classes are open to anyone interested, regardless of ordination status.  We hope that those already serving in local church ministry will join us in taking classes as a form of continuing education and professional growth.  
 
CMC COHORT GROUP – (CMCs only) The following classes will be linked to Cohort groups which will provide practical application opportunities:  Church Multiplication & Mission, Preaching, and Leadership & Administration.  Each of these Practicum components will be given 1 credit.  We recommend that the Cohort groups meet every 5th Sunday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM at one of our local churches.  Church locations are to be determined with the goal of each Cohort group visiting 12 different churches over the three-year period of training.  
 
COST – The cost (per credit hour) is $65 (FM Member).  A 3-credit class, for example, would be $195.00.
