Ministry

The Ministry Program is a four-year Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science program that includes a Biblical Studies major and a Ministry major. The Ministry program is a unique opportunity for a student to build their own degree program. Mid-Atlantic recognizes that one size does not fit all. Therefore, we are excited to offer a program that allows students to pick and choose from a variety of courses related to formal Christian vocational service, either in the United States or abroad. Students will take a core of courses, including a significant internship experience, and then fill out the program with electives ranging from preaching, youth ministry, worship, and cross-cultural ministry.

Some students may choose to concentrate their elective course choices to the area of preaching.  Students who complete 12 credit hours in preaching courses will graduate with a Ministry Major with preaching concentration degree.

Some students may choose to concentration their elective course choice to the area of cross-cultural ministry. Students who complete 15 credit hours in cross-cultural ministry (and take 6 credit hours of pre-selected general studies courses) will graduate with a Ministry Major with cross-cultural ministry concentration degree.

Students successfully completing the Ministry major will:

  • reflect upon their personal walk with God and gifts for ministry;
  • develop skills necessary for effective communication of God’s Word;
  • demonstrate knowledge of effective Christian leadership;
  • apply ministry skills necessary to fulfill their calling;
  • value the role of career Christian ministry and grasp their individual contribution to this work.
