The School of Christian Ministries at Emmanuel College offers the following degree programs:
Christian Ministries – 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.
Worship Ministry – The Bachelor of Science in Worship Ministry degree is designed to prepare students for the practical ministry of music and the worship arts in the context of contemporary evangelical and Pentecostal-Charismatic local churches. Students obtaining this degree will receive instruction in worship music theory, ear training, voice, piano, and guitar; they will develop a practical theology of Christian worship based on church music history and philosophy; and they will study applied methods for team building and disciple-making in the context of the worship team as well as service planning, song selection, audio/video/lighting technology and techniques, rehearsal techniques, and congregational worship practices. Upon completion, students will be prepared to serve the local church in a variety of pastoral roles including worship pastor, associate pastor, discipleship pastor, or music director.
Additionally, a student may minor in Christian Ministries or Biblical Studies.
