Why Bible, Missions, and Ministry?

chapelOur Mission

The mission of the Department of Bible, Missions, and Ministry (DBMM) is twofold: 1) to equip all departmental majors with a broad spectrum of knowledge, skills, and experiences in preparation for further study or for engagement in ministry; and 2) to provide all ACU students with biblical and spiritual resources with which they may live as committed disciples.

  • Our graduates find employment in congregations as missionaries, youth ministers, children's ministers, pulpit ministers, campus ministers and more.
  • Students obtain summer internships with congregations all over the United States and abroad.
  • Alumni have been accepted into graduate programs of Bible and religion at various schools including Yale University, Princeton Theological Seminary, University of Chicago, Harvard University and Emory University.
  • Our vibrant missions community is led by four missions faculty and five missions coordinators representing five continents.
