BA Christian Ministry California Christian College
Bible Colleges such as California Christian College exist for the primary purpose of preparing individuals for ministry in Church-based vocations such as pastors, evangelists, missionaries, Christian education directors, youth ministers, and similar church-related functions. The division of Christian ministries strives to provide students the foundation they need to serve in these capacities. Students who complete the Bachelor of Arts in Christian Ministry will be prepared either to enter directly into the ministry of their calling or to continue their education in graduate school.
The four-year, Bachelor of Arts in Christian Ministry includes courses in three major areas: general education, ministry, and biblical-theological studies. Students may choose an area of emphasis to prepare for a particular field of ministry. Those with a ministry calling to lead the Church should focus on the Bible and its content. The emphasis of this program falls in that area. The goal is to provide the student with a foundation to serve effectively in a pastoral or evangelistic ministry. This is accomplished by requiring thirty-nine (39) units in biblical-theological studies, twelve (12) units in Christian ministry, forty-six (46) units in general education, and thirty-one (31) elective units, a portion of which should be applied to a preferred area of emphasis.
