Where in our cultural context is God calling us to serve?

banner image background banner image background

The mission of the church, around the world, is cross-cultural, making it all the more vital that those engaged in a missional calling have a deep understanding of the biblical and theological teaching of the gospel in its holistic sense, and a discerning grasp of our own cultural contexts. A minor in ministry provides both a biblical understanding of missions and a worldview perspective on culture and society to prepare you for vocations in mission and ministry.

Ministry is offered as a minor.
