Emmanuel College is committed to the view that preparation for ministry includes the development of ministers as persons and not just the acquisition of technical skills for ministry. The Christian Ministry major is designed to introduce a variety of studies in practical ministry as well as Biblical and theological studies to help define the student’s interests in ministry. The major provides opportunity for the student to consider various forms of Christian ministry and what kinds of persons are suited for various ministry forms.
