Church Ministry

Program Overview

Learn to be an effective leader in a variety of pastoral positions. As you come to understand how societal trends can influence church ministry, you'll learn to lead and transform congregations in ways that are creative and scripturally sound.

Expand your biblical literacy, reflect on theology, and undergo personal, spiritual and professional formation.

This is where you can go
  • Lead Pastor
  • Worship Pastor
  • Director of Music Ministries
  • International Service Worker
  • Camp Director
This is your career
With a Bachelor of Theology degree, you’ll be equipped to serve as a committed, competent ministry professional in an ever‐changing culture. You’ll also be on the right track to pursue seminary studies.

Beyond the Classroom

In your second year, you’ll start a practicum of 5 ‐ 6 hours per week in a church or organization. Then, before the final year of your program, you’ll do a 3 ‐ 12 month full‐time internship. In your final year, you’ll have a chance to reflect on what you learned during your time in the field. This hands‐on experience will give you insight into the world of professional ministry. By meeting with a mentor and reflecting on your experiences, you’ll further improve your ministry practice and figure out how best to apply the things you’ve learned in your classes to the real world.
