Graduate Degrees

-Those who plan to pursue further study in another professional field but who wish a foundation in Biblical Studies before entering other graduate studies or their career.
-Those already in a career (e.g. lawyers, business persons, and school teachers) who wish to study Biblical and Theological issues to enhance themselves intellectually and or in a lay leadership or church ministry.

Investment of Time, Prayer, and Love

“I’ll never forget how the Bible and Ministry professors at KCU cared about me as a person. They didn’t just see me
as a student number. They invested time, prayer, and love into my life and my ministry, and I’m eternally thankful
for their influence.”

Sean Plank, Class of 2010
