I. First field of study: Church Ministries (Men Only)


This course of study prepares one for a specific area of ministry in the local church, whether as pastor, missionary, evangelist, assistant pastor, or music, bus, or youth director.  In addition to the core curriculum, the student would need to choose electives from his major.  Ladies wanting to major in missions are encouraged to earn a degree in Biblical Studies with an emphasis in Marriage and Motherhood.


II.  Second field of study: Religious Education


This line of study prepares one as a Christian schoolteacher (elementary and secondary), an administrator or principle, a wife of a full-time Christian worker, or a wife and mother.


III.  Third field of study: Biblical Studies


A generalized course of study on the undergraduate level is available, and is designed for the student who is either undecided on a particular area of ministry or wants a concentration of study in the Bible.  Additionally, one may continue in his field of study to a more specific study of theology, yielding either a Master of Biblical Studies (M.B.S.), Master of Christian Counseling (C.C.M.), Master of Theology (Th.M.), or a Doctor of Philosphy in Religion (Ph.D).  The M.B.S, C.C.M., and Th.M. are one-year programs (32 credits) while the Ph.D. is a two-year (64 credits) program of study.


IV.  Fourth field of study: Secretarial Program (Ladies Only)


This program is designed to train secretaries for full-time Christian work.  Upon completion of this program, an associate diploma will be awarded.
