The Educational Ministries degree is preparation for a broad spectrum of applications to the workforce. Knowledge of self, God and others prepares students to find their place of leadership through development of their God-given talents. These skills prepare graduates to lead through rewarding work in a variety of potential venues. Studies in psychology, sociology and leadership theory, coupled with creative thinking and compassion, shape students to work as servant leaders who are equipped to teach in churches and parachurch organizations both locally and abroad.
- Understand People
People are the apex of God’s creation – objects of His affection and agents of His purposes. We believe every effective minister should seek to deeply understand and love people, to explore how they grow and develop, and to perceive what makes them who they are (1 Timothy 1:5).
- Design Ministry
Leaders are needed to develop and refine strategies that reach and nurture people into an abiding walk with Christ (Colossians 1:28-29). We believe the next generation of ministers will need to think more creatively and incisively than ever before about how to provide effective ministry to this complex and rapidly changing world.
- Develop Leaders
The task of an effective minister is one of equipping – to prepare the people of God for the work of the ministry (Ephesians 4:11). Raising disciples who will go themselves and make disciples lies at the heart of the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20). We believe in the strategic importance of multiplying leaders.
