The School of Ministry prepares graduates for success in a wide variety of ministries, including student and family, missions, pastoral, Bible teaching, and women’s ministry. We believe in combining strong academics and practical experience. Our School of Ministry faculty has eleven earned doctorates to go with decades of effective ministry in America and abroad. Our curriculum brings together solid traditional Biblical and theological education, relevant leadership training, and mentored ministry experience to provide the breadth and depth of preparation needed for ministry today.
The Department of Ministry provides students with the biblical and theological values, skills and knowledge necessary for starting a lifetime of personal growth and Christian service. This includes training ministry majors to begin an effective lifelong vocational ministry.
The ministry major builds on the foundation of our general education core. The values, skills and knowledge acquired in this core are deepened, enhanced and expanded to meet the needs of successful ministry today. The ministry major is a two-tier design. The first tier provides the common competencies required in any fruitful ministry. The second tier focuses on the abilities unique to particular ministry fields. For those students with specific ministry goals not addressed in the standard ministry majors, the division offers a specialized ministry program that allows students to develop an individualized major with the guidance and approval of an academic advisor.
Where we've been and where we're going...
"Because of the merger of Corban University and Northwest Baptist Seminary, the new Corban School of Ministry can provide superior ministry training to people at every level. With seven undergraduate ministry programs, two new master’s degrees, and our doctor of ministry program, we can help any believer to grow in their service to the Lord."
– Dr. Greg Trull, Dean, School of Ministry
* All Corban students who complete the general education requirement in Biblical Studies with grades C- or better receive a minor in Biblical Studies. Students who receive less than C- grades in this requirement can choose to retake the class for a higher grade, or forfeit receiving the minor.
