Theology is the study of God: therefore, this program of study will provide a strong foundation of theology and help prepare the student for Christian ministry as a Bible teacher, preacher, missionary, and various other public and personal ministry roles. Anyone called to ministry, regardless of their calling, should possess an intense knowledge of New Testament ministry and a deeper conviction and commitment to his /her own personal call to ministry. Upon completion of the program the student should demonstrate a greater understanding of God, a methodology for bible study and interpretation, and the ability to effectively use the word of God in Christian ministry.
