More Information

Christian Ministry, B.S.

Graduates of Crown’s online Christian Ministry B.S. are prepared to serve. They’re employed throughout the U.S. and around the world in ministries and missions, educational and social service organizations. Because wherever their path, graduates use their training to share their deep understanding of Christianity with others, and integrate faith into the personal and professional lives around them.

Crown’s curriculum begins with a strong core in Biblical literacy, interpretation and knowledge. Coursework includes practical skills in communications, and the management and administration of faith-based organizations. Leadership, evangelism, counseling and discipleship are also essential components of the online learning curriculum. 

Four senior classes—Human Development and Discipleship, Ministry Management and Administration, Ministry Communications, and Capstone: Life of the Ministry Leader—incorporate internship components. Students engage in an independent project with a local ministry, church or other faith-based organization. 

Crown’s partnerships with such organizations as PrepareEnrich, a Christian relationship skill-building program, allow students to become certified in pre-marital and marital counseling while earning their B.S. Students also complete a “Life of Christ” curriculum developed by Crown, which they can use in their professional work as well.

Crown’s B.S. students are free to add any of our other Bachelor’s offerings as a minor. In many cases, the minor does not add any additional courses to their B.S. program.

Faculty with credentials in academic excellence, and with significant ministry and mission experience, lead the courses in Crown’s dynamic online learning environment. The Christian Ministry B.S. reflects Crown’s academic integrity as one of the "Top 10 Online Christian Colleges of 2013."

Crown’s easy-to-use online learning environment allows you the freedom and flexibility to complete coursework at your convenience. Tuition is priced competitively lower than at similar accredited institutions.
