Why study ministry at CUI?
There are three main reasons why you should seriously consider studying for ministry at CUI.
All of our theologians display a passion for the gospel. Whether their field is in exegesis, systematics, history, or practical theology each one of them is a seasoned minister who desires to see the world transformed by the gospel.
When you come to study in the Center for Church Leadership (CCL), you come to be a part of a community of fellow students who also desire to be shaped and formed as workers for God’s kingdom. Our ongoing mantra is Proverbs 27:17 – “iron sharpens iron”. As part of the CCL community, you will be challenged, and you will challenge one another in a safe and caring environment designed for academic reflection and friendly engagement. Outside of the classroom, you will have the opportunity to participate in CCL social and spiritual events, which include dinners at the director’s home, cohort lunches on campus, retreats, and mission opportunities.
Large Diversity of Fieldwork Opportunities
Southern California is home to a wide variety of churches. We have nationally known megachurches right in our backyard, alongside churches of varying sizes and ethnicities. There is indeed a right size that will fit all when it comes to the specific type of church, and ministry area that you would like to engage with for your fieldwork experiences.
