Our Bachelor of Theology in Church Ministries will equip you with the necessary skills for effective service in churches and worship settings, youth ministries, outreach programs and other para-church organizations. You’ll gain insight from the historical roots and contemporary characteristics of the church, and you’ll be trained to understand and relate sensitively to the needs of congregations and local communities.
Your BTh studies will follow one of four tracks: Youth Leadership, Pastoral Ministries, Christian Education or Christian Administration.
The prerequisite for entry into the Church Ministries major is a grade of "C" or better in each of the introductory 9 credit hours in Biblical and Theological Studies (121.11, 121.12, 117.11). For students who have taken additional courses toward the major, a minimum GPA of 2.00 is required on all courses, excluding failed courses.
