120 Credit Hours

The major in Ministry (without a specified concentration) prepares students for the broadest range of ministries, providing students with the knowledge, skills, and character necessary for virtually any ministry within a church, parachurch, or non-profit organization. This major is designed for two types of students: (1) for students who are unsure of what ministry they want to pursue, but who do feel called to ministry; (2) for students whose interests go beyond these concentrations. Both of these types of students are encouraged to work with their advisors to choose electives that can be tailored to their unique ministry interests.
