Bryan faculty all have Ph.D.’s, DMin, and master’s degrees in Christian education, and are committed to providing you with one-on-one discipleship and quality of education that is both preparatory and devotional in nature to the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Our graduates serve in a multitude of various ministry roles in local churches, parachurch ministries, and missions organizations. In 1968, according to a recent Barna study, 55 percent of all Protestant clergy were under the age of 45—that is, the majority of all church leaders were in their 20s, 30s, and early 40s. Just 50 years later, only 22 percent are under 45. The Christian Ministry program is developed for and dedicated to training the next generation of young ministry leaders.
Students can use their 15 hours of Christian Ministry electives to specialize in one of our five minors or specialization areas: Pastoral Ministry, Youth Ministry, Worship Ministry, Ministry Leadership, and Missions.
