Christian Ministry

Our Christian Ministry program is designed to prepare you for a variety of service opportunities in the local church or parachurch ministries.

In order to be an effective leader in any realm of Christian ministry, you must possess a strong foundational orthodoxy, which in turn requires investment in biblical studies, biblical languages, and Christian theology. Practical and relevant orthopraxy is of equal necessity. To help shape this active-oriented mindset, students study specialized courses alongside core courses that are relevant for all Christian ministry leaders.

Our faculty, all with PhD’s, DMin, and Master’s level education in the field of Christian education, are committed to one-on-one discipleship and a quality of education that is both preparatory and devotional in nature to the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
