PennDel School of Ministry

 

PennDel School of Ministry (PDSOM) is a member of the Association of District Schools of Ministry (ADSOM). We began in the fall of 2016 with our first campus in Monroeville, and we are opening our second campus in York this fall. Successful completion of each level of instruction fulfills the District’s educational requirement to receive credentials.

One time registration fee is $75.00. Enrollment for each course is $60.00 per class plus textbooks.

There are internships required at each level of instruction.

This fall (2017) Monroeville campus (meeting at Monroeville AG) will offer Level 1 and Level 2 classes, and the York campus (1st AG, York) will offer Level 1 classes only. The Monroeville campus classes meet on the SECOND Saturday of each month (Sept-May). The York campus classes meet on the THIRD Saturday of each month. Both campuses follow the same class schedule each month. In September 2017 AG History will be offered at Monroeville on the SECOND Saturday AND will be offered at the York campus on the THIRD Saturday.
