Roberts Offers New Degree Program in Christian Ministry, Effective Fall 2020
Roberts Wesleyan College is pleased to announce a new Bachelor of Science degree program in Christian Ministry, effective fall 2020. The completion program prepares students to serve God within a variety of environments, whether in a church, parachurch or community context. Designed for working professionals to complete in 12-24 months, the program consists of 36 total credit hours and will be offered exclusively online.
The structure of the program’s curriculum equips students with biblical, theological and practical knowledge that serves as a foundation to further develop their skillset and deepen their relationship to God. Program courses include Leadership in Ministry, Ministry and Mission in the Global Church, Introduction to Christian Theology and the Philosophy of Religion, among others. Through critical exploration of timely issues related to faith, culture and ministry, students will not only be able to thoroughly develop habitual spiritual formation practices that will enable them to lead in diverse ministry contexts, but will also deepen their understanding of biblical content, scriptural themes and important teachings in the Old and New Testaments.
“Forming a deep relationship with God is key to one’s spiritual journey,” said Kristin Helms, program director for Christian Ministry and associate professor of Biblical Studies at Roberts Wesleyan College. “Through well-rounded coursework taught by experienced faculty and centered in spiritual formation, students will form essential habits in spiritual discipline that are critical to longevity and effectiveness in ministry. We’re pleased to add to Roberts Wesleyan’s robust academic offerings that prepare students to lead purposeful and service-driven lives.”
Upon completion of the program, students will be prepared to enter a variety of ministry internships or careers such as pastor, youth pastor, military chaplain, church administrator and more. The program is also beneficial to those already serving in ministry that wish to further their education and expertise in the field, and provides students with the necessary academic preparation to pursue graduate education in ministry at accredited institutions, such as Northeastern Seminary.
The college is currently accepting applications from prospective students for the fall 2020, spring 2021 and summer 2021 semesters. Financial aid will be available to enrollees and a 10 percent tuition discount will be applicable to those who enroll in the program’s inaugural start on August 31.
