Children's Ministry

Department of Christian Ministries

If you have a love for children and want to help shape the next generation, get equipped with the skills and experience needed to work full time or to volunteer in children’s ministry.

Professors with a passion for serving children will teach you practical tools and theory that will let you dive into the minds of children and their relationship with God. You will develop a solid understanding of children’s characteristics and needs at each stage of their development. In your internship, you can apply what you learn and gain the experience you need to support and nurture children. This program will help you make a difference in the lives of the next generation.
