Are you ready to go deeper?

The NAWE is here to equip you!

The NAWE offers a six-step course of study to ordination.

The first five steps ("modules") are for education in basic Christian doctrines and practices. Participants do not have to pursue ordination and may stop there, earning the Certificate of Completion. 

Those wishing to be ordained for ministry as a Deacon or an Elder may continue to the sixth module, which pertains to ordination candidates.

These modules are administered to a class of students via email. Assignments are at your own pace, with weekly due dates. No fee is charged, and there are no textbooks to purchase. You do not have to have a seminary or academic background to understand the topics being taught, and no degree is required to enroll.
