Educational Ministries Requirements

B.A. in Bible and Theology with an Educational Ministries Minor

This program is designed to equip graduates for ministry in a variety of ministry settings within the local church and ministry organizations. It is specifically for students with a desire to develop ministry skills that apply broadly across diverse populations and ministries. The program is well-suited for students who are committed to ministry but are undecided about the setting or the group of focus.

A Camp Ministry Track is an available add-on to the Educational  Ministries Minor.
