Program Description

Overview

The biblical and theological studies program will help you discern and prepare for the call to serve God and the church and to deepen your knowledge of Scripture and ministry. Using the biblical text as a primary source, you’ll gain multiple viewpoints and encounter a wide array of voices. Reenact first century Jerusalem in full costume or study environmental issues through a faith-based lens. You'll take courses taught by well-traveled faculty with expertise in pastoral ministry, literature, missions, and archeology. Your passion for both learning and the church will come alive as you ask the important questions and learn what it means to live a God-centered life.
