What can I do with a degree in Ministry?

We define vocation as a “calling”. It means your career choice grows out of who you really are deep down inside and reflects what God is asking you to do for Him.
KCU’s Sack School of Bible and Ministry offers preparation for vocational ministry in the following areas:

  • Advanced Biblical Studies
  • Preaching
  • Youth (Jr. & Sr. High)
  • Children
  • Family Life
  • Small Groups
  • Worship
  • Christian Education
  • Missions
  • Church Planting
  • Church Administration
  • Camp Management

The Bible and Ministry Degree at KCU offers four key strengths:

  • Internship: All Bible and Ministry students must complete a 12-credit-hour, 6-8 month internship. Our students have the opportunity to put their coursework into action before they graduate in an environment designed to nurture and challenge them. We believe there is simply no substitute for experience.
  • Portfolio: We intentionally connect our work in our courses to real-world, practical ministry competence. That means that students graduate with a resource that shows that they are able to put their studies into actual ministry practice.
  • Academic Excellence: Our faculty are well-prepared and well-qualified. What this means is that they are not just experts in Scripture but experts in putting their studies to work in the real world.
  • Pastoral Investment: Our faculty have spent time (and currently spend time) doing ministry. We employ faculty who see what they do at KCU as investing in the Kingdom of God. That means you not only get instructors, but also mentors and pastors who see themselves as partners with you in your calling. Our goal that the students receive ongoing mentoring designed to shape them for ministry both inside and outside the classroom.
