Is this major right for me?
This degree is designed for students who long to reach people with the message of Jesus. After receiving a solid foundation in University Core and general education Bible classes, students will be trained and equipped to go and share the gospel message with people in a variety of cultural settings.
Vocational Missions is designed for students with a passion for God's Word and strong people skills, who intend to pursue "tent-making" ministry in another cultural or geographical setting. In other words, these students plan to support themselves through secular work while living as part of a mission team.
With this major, you will:
- Gain a solid theological foundation in the Bible, both Old and New Testaments.
- Study the principles of the New Testament and how those are applied to daily life and ministry.
- Learn the history of the church universal and the Restoration Movement, seeking to understand the impact of that heritage on church today.
- Receive both theoretical instruction and practical training in ministry, especially church planting and cross-cultural missions.
- Gain missions experience through Missions Seminar, Missions Focus and internships with organizations such as WorldWide Witness and Let's Start Talking.
