About the Program: Earn Your Ministry Degree Online
God calls on us all in his own way. Some are called to help guide businesses. Some are called to help people heal through health care services. And some are called to ministry – to lead others in matters of faith and guidance.
To become an effective minister, you need to develop a firm foundation in Christ and the Scriptures that help us make the right choices and guide our lives. At our Christian university, we can help you learn the life and leadership skills you need to become an effective minister.
Our Associate Christian Ministries degree program gives students an understanding of a Christian worldview and biblical morality from a Wesleyan-Arminian perspective. Graduates will be prepared to undertake entry-level ministry positions in the Wesleyan church, other Christian churches and para-church organizations, or to proceed on to bachelor-level work in Ministry or Biblical Studies.
The A.S. program meets many academic and practicum requirements for licensing and/or ordination in many denominations. Within The Wesleyan Church, this Associate degree fulfills four of six academic requirements for District Licensure and more than half of the academic requirements for ordination. It can also be used as a degree completion program for students hoping to earn a more advanced degree.
The program may be completed online, or onsite at locations in Indiana, Ohio, and Kentucky.
Getting your Associate in Christian Ministries is a great foundation for obtaining a Bachelor's in Biblical Studies, a Bachelor’s in Ministry or even getting your Master’s of Divinity, which can help you advance in your career.
