Discipleship Ministries, B.S.

The discipleship ministries bachelor’s degree is a ministry generalist degree designed to equip graduates focused on developing healthy Christian disciples. Without focusing on a specific age group, the curriculum covers how people learn, and how faith and morality are developed. By learning the correlation, organization and administration of the educational process for children, youth and adults, students learn the process of effective discipleship.

During the final year of their discipleship ministries degree program, students participate in a full-immersive ministry internship, providing an on-site field practice in ministry. Graduates of the Christian discipleship ministries degree are prepared to pursue future graduate work and can expect to find employment in a variety of discipleship ministry programs in churches or ministry organizations.
