Bachelor of Arts in Pastoral Ministry

The B.A. in Pastoral Ministry program of 130 hours prepares the graduate to lead a local church as a pastor or associate pastor. The graduate will be competent to prepare and proclaim effective Bible messages, provide competent counsel or assistance to those to whom he ministers in coping with the typical problems of life, and give competent leadership to the ministries and programs of the local church. For many graduates this degree is their final formal ministry preparation. For those called to continue their education, the B.A. in Arts in Pastoral Ministry is an excellent foundation for graduate studies.

In addition to the 100 hour core of studies, the Pastoral Ministry Program consists of 22 hours of required courses which includes 8 hours of electives designed to allow the student to structure his studies according to personal needs or interests.
