Online BA Degree: Christian Ministry

Center for Church Leadership

The online Bachelor of Arts in Christian Ministry prepares, equips, and forms Christian students for ministry in Christian congregations as pastors and other ministry leaders. Through academic course work, spiritual and ministry formation, and hands-on ministry experience, students will be prepared to serve in various ministry settings in our ever-changing world.

This program is open to students who 1) already possess a bachelor’s degree or fulfill Concordia’s requirements to enter an online bachelor’s degree program and 2) who are working in a relevant ministry position in a church or church-related context.

Students will be required to complete one or two short residencies on campus, one of which will be associated with DCE 450 Counseling in Ministry. Costs associated with the residencies are the student’s responsibility.

Application to the program will be made to Christ College, which will make the final decision regarding admission to the program. Students wishing to complete this program as their first bachelor’s degree must complete all general education and degree requirements laid out in the catalog.
