The Department of Arts and Sciences educates students in foundational knowledge and skills for a broad range of service in society and provides specialized programs of education in disciplines that enable students to make an impact as transformational Christian leaders in the church and the world.
Jesus emphasized the centrality of God’s spoken Word for an individual’s life. MACU seeks to help students value God’s Word as a central focal point by requiring all students who earn a degree to complete a minimum of 18 hours in biblical and theological studies. Jesus, also emphasized that Christian ministry is to be done as service. Christian greatness is measured by the quality of servanthood that a disciple demonstrates (Matthew 20:26). The Department of Bible and Christian Ministry seeks to enable students to combine sound biblical teaching with skills that will allow them to humbly serve others. Whether our graduates are serving the local church by preaching, leading worship, working with youth and children, or serving on a foreign mission field, all need to know how to follow in Jesus’ footsteps in order to be fruitful in Christian ministry.
The mission of the Department of Marketplace Ministry is to provide students with an educational experience that integrates faith, biblical knowledge and the skills training necessary to become leaders and innovators in both faith-based institutions and secular organizations. The goal is to provide education and experiences that will help students develop a heart’s desire to serve individuals, families and communities where they work in a way that will impact the world for Christ.
