This concentration is for men and women who feel called to serve, but not necessarily to preach or teach behind a pulpit or lectern. This concentration equips students to serve in the areas of Bible, accounting, business, and media within the context of a local, New Testament church.

College Experience

College media and computer labs allow students to work on class and ministry projects to grow and develop skills essential to the students' future service. Students learn how to lead and manage projects and ministry events in a Christ-like, biblical way.
