Purpose and Objectives

The Church Ministry major provides students with specialized knowledge and skills to serve effectively as staff members in a local church.

In addition to the mission statement, general objectives, and requirements of the bachelor’s degree, the objectives of the Church Ministry program are to enable students to:

  • Communicate the Bible in both formal and informal settings.
  • Plan and administer local church programs.
  • Lead people by addressing their personal, spiritual needs and equipping them for ministry.

Because they complete twelve hours of Bible and Theology as part of the Church Ministry major, students also earn a Bible major.

See Undergraduate Core  for graduation requirements.
