The Department of Christian Ministry equips people for Kingdom building around the world.

Students develop ministry skills to be pastors, Christian education ministers, youth ministers, children’s ministers, other staff positions or missionaries, as well as for lay ministry.


All majors in Christian Ministry, except Intercultural Studies, must complete the University's general education and graduation requirements as well as the 15 semester hour Redford CORE Curriculum which will provide a balanced theological education. The Intercultural Studies exception substitutes a 32 semester hour ICS CORE. Details are included on each of the concentration program pages linked above.
