If you believe God is calling you into full-time pastoral ministry, it is vital that you seek a place committed to providing solid biblical and theological instruction, as well as practical, hands-on experience.
Through the pastoral ministries program, you will gain the knowledge and skills you need to shepherd a local congregation. You will be trained in the very essence of what pastoral ministry is all about. Best of all, you will be taught by godly men and women who are committed to pouring themselves into the lives of their students through mentoring relationships. We connect students with a local pastor for monthly mentoring and accountability. Local pastors also visit the classroom on a regular basis to share their experience and firsthand stories of pastoral life.
Below are a few of the course electives in the Pastoral Ministries concentration:
