A bold commitment to the trustworthiness of the Bible underlies a rigorous academic program that offers you seminary-level courses such as apologetics, Biblical archaeology, Hebrew or Greek. You learn from professors seasoned through years of pastoral ministry, whose concern for your intellectual development is balanced with a concern for your spiritual growth. Our faculty will challenge you to “love the Lord with your entire mind” as you grow into an evangelical scholar.

Wherever God is calling you to serve, the School of Christian Ministries will prepare you to serve him with your best talents. Choose from a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in Theology.  A minor is also offered in Theology.
