lead. serve.

The Ministry and Leadership Department prepares men and women for specializations in pastoral disciple-making ministries in the church and faith-based organizations. It builds upon a strong biblical and theological base while integrating insights from the social sciences and educational technology. This program contributes to an understanding of the biblical imperative for church training and discipleship, the ability to communicate effectively the significant role that teaching has in personal growth and leadership development, and the ability to construct a biblically sound philosophy of ministry that will endure sociological and cultural change. It also provides the ability to teach and effectively minister to selected age groups as well as the ability to design, administer, and evaluate educational ministries within the local church and faith-based organizations.

The Ministry and Leadership Department offers five quality majors and five minors that will equip you for graduate school, staff positions in the local church, and ministry positions in faith-based organizations.
