Why Bible Ministries?

A Bible Ministries degree builds upon your education in another discipline (either an associate or bachelor’s degree, or 64 college credits at another institution), preparing you for various areas of ministry, such as youth and family, children’s ministry, pastoral leadership, or parachurch opportunities. Courses concentrate on ministry leadership, christian theology, old and new testament studies, and biblical perspectives on contemporary issues.
