PREPARING TO MINISTER IN A DIVERSE WORLD
Technological advances are shrinking our world. People and cultures that were once widely separated by geography are now in direct communication and only minutes or hours apart, making the world a more complex and challenging place to live, work, and minister.
Indiana Wesleyan University’s Bachelor of Arts with a major in Global Ministries degree will equip students to serve in cross-cultural ministry at home and abroad. The program combines courses in classical religious studies, such as bible, religion, theology, philosophy, history, and missiology, and in intercultural studies with practical courses that are focused on cross-cultural life and service.
Global Ministries is an interdisciplinary program designed to prepare you to serve in cross-cultural professional ministry. For that reason, effective preparation for service in an increasingly global world requires a curriculum designed to promote growth in the following three domains:
- Cognitive: Knowledge and Understanding
- Affective: Attitudes, Dispositions and Values
- Conative: Abilities, Competencies and Skills
GLOBAL MINISTRIES MINOR
The minor in Global Ministries is for students planning to serve in intentional cross-cultural ministry alongside a chosen major area of study. Students from any of IWU’s other majors are welcome, but particularly those who are preparing for cross-cultural church-based Christian ministry.
