Bachelor of Arts in Christian Ministries

Where Can This Degree Take Me?

Equip yourself for ministry with the biblical, theological, and social science foundations necessary to serve Christ in all areas of life! In the Christian Ministries major, courses are designed to help you develop strong personal integrity and ministry competence. All Christian Ministries students participate in a reflective ministry internship that provides first-hand exposure to diverse areas of ministry under appropriate supervision.

Students who study together have several common interests: a passion for the Lord, a love for people, and a desire to see this world transformed for the glory of God. Does this describe you? If so, TIU-Florida will prepare you both theologically and practically in the areas of personal maturity, relational competence, and ministry skills to engage contemporary culture through Christ for His kingdom.
