The capstone course will focus on strengthening the corps officer in three key areas of personal development: the officer’s spiritual life, pastoral vocation, and effectiveness and balance. The certificate program culminates in a portfolio project integrating new research with learning from the other four courses, and developed in coordination with the corps officer’s coach/mentor (a senior officer or area commander) over the duration of the certificate program.
