Christian Ministry Program –
Dual Minor

Description

Students who want maximum diversification in their ministry training may choose to minor in two ministry fields rather than major in only one. These two minors are combined with the General Education core and the Bible major to complete the program requirements of a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree. The program is made up of three components:

  1. Christian Ministries Core, a series of courses which give you exposure to a broad range of ministry fields and develop your ministry skills and outlook in a systematic way.
  2. Minor #1, a combination of required core classes, guided electives, and internships designed to teach you essential skills in one ministry field.
  3. Minor #2, a combination of required core classes, guided electives, and internships designed to teach you essential skills in a second ministry field.

You may choose your two minors from a slate of seven options:

  1. Christian Education
  2. Greek Language (Bachelor of Arts only)
  3. Intercultural Studies
  4. Preaching Ministry
  5. Small Groups Ministry
  6. Worship Ministry

The Dual Minor program does not include following strong minors:

  1. Christian Psychology (see the Helping Professions Program on page 59)
  2. Christian Teaching (see the Christian Teaching Program on page 58)
