Christian Ministry

Program Description

The Christian Ministry degree is designed to equip students for effective Christian leadership in the church and around the world. The course material in Christian Ministry will prepare students for ministry in churches, parachurch organizations, campus ministry, mission settings, and many more. Attend one night each week (Tuesday) and complete your Bachelor Degree in just 48 months!

Two options are available. Students with no prior coursework may first complete the Associate of Applied Science degree in Biblical Studies and then enroll in the Bachelor of Science in Christian Ministry. Students who have completed prior coursework may find the Degree Completion option best. The Degree Completion is designed for a student who has completed an Associates Degree or Bachelor Degree from another institution of higher education and has completed 45 General Education Hours and up to 30 Open Electives.  Any outstanding requirements from that 75 would still need to be completed either at SLCC or at another college.

“I would recommend the evening program at SLCC because it accommodates a student who is employed during the day. Also, I enjoyed the biblical and practical knowledge that allows the student to immediately apply what they have learned in various ministry settings.”
