The major in Pastoral Ministry introduces students to the knowledge and skills central to the work of pastors through classes in pastoral ministry, discipleship, counseling, and Bible exposition. The major also provides students the opportunity for additional classes in biblical and theological studies beyond those of the Core Curriculum. The program is designed to begin the formation of the student’s life for pastoral ministry and prepares students for continuing studies in the Master of Divinity, the standard degree for the equipping of pastors.
