"PREPARING THE PEOPLE OF GOD FOR THE WORK OF GOD" —A. J. GORDON
The Christian Ministries major prepares students to serve effectively in a broad range of ministries in churches, parachurch organizations, and social service agencies. Coupled with extensive field experience and a broad liberal arts curriculum, graduates are uniquely prepared for ministry in a variety of contexts and for an array of graduate programs.
Here at Gordon, your studies will include exploration of the theoretical, philosophical, biblical, and theological foundations of ministry. These topics are taught through a combination of practice and theory, allowing you to construct a philosophy of ministry. From the time you begin your studies, you are involved in asking appropriate questions in your ministry context, studying theories from the arts and sciences, and then relating those principles in real-life contexts.
Time to pack your bags and books… You can choose among many semester, year, short-term, or summer abroad programs around the globe through the Global Education Office (GEO). Tuition for the programs is generally the same as a regular semester or year on campus. Check out some of the many opportunities:
