Practicing Christian ministry

As a Christian ministries major you’ll be required to do field work and a practicum in a local church or ministry setting. And you will also participate in “spiritual formation” (mentoring) groups during your sophomore and senior year as part of the requirements for your Christian ministries degree.

Classroom study

Within the Christian ministries major you will take foundational Bible and theology courses, and take an in-depth look at various Bible texts, including Pentateuch, Historical Books, Poetical and Wisdom Literature, Gospels, Paul and His Letter, and Revelation.

Missions work

If you are interested in missions, there are also many courses available in missions training, world religions and world Christianity.
