AN EFFECTIVE TEACHING MINISTRY

There’s more to church than the Sunday morning sermon. Bible teaching and Christian education are vital components of local church ministry. The Education Ministries major equips you with the tools you need to lead the discipleship ministries of the church. You will learn to develop and lead educational ministries from professors who have first-hand experience in local church ministry.

Organize and equip
You get excited when others learn and understand truth. You love seeing the look on someone’s face when a biblical insight is grasped, whether they’re four, 40, or 104 years old. As both a leader and a teacher, you are good at organizing teams and equipping others with the knowledge and tools they need to serve the Lord anywhere they go.

The Education Ministries major gives you the skills and confidence you need to help grow the church—both locally and worldwide.
