Pastoral Ministry Program
SBU's Christian Ministry degree with a concentration in Pastoral Ministry will prepare you to lead and serve as a pastor in a local church or in other ministry leadership roles. Coursework in Biblical studies, evangelism and preaching, combined with a ministry apprenticeship will give you both the academic background and practical skill set needed either to enter the pastoral ministry immediately after graduation or to pursue seminary study.
Many pastoral ministry students choose to add another major or minor in another academic discipline, such as psychology, communication, English or business. Adding another area of study will enhance your skill set for ministry and equip you for bivocational ministry roles.
The Pastoral Ministry program is offered through SBU's Courts Redford College of Theology and Ministry.
