The student ministry major delivers the foundation, ministry skills, and attitudes that will prepare students to serve as ministers to youth in church or para-church settings. Students can choose to specialize in Urban Ministry, Children's Ministry, Outdoor/Experiential Education, or College Ministry.
In the senior year of study, students must complete an internship, equipping them with hands on experience where classroom knowledge can be practically applied. Faculty who teach in this major combine education with church experience, delivering to students an enriched learning context.
