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 online 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.

SEMESTER START DATES: August, January, and May

DEGREE: Bachelor of Science (B.S.)
