CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES

ministries

The College of Christian Ministries trains men and women to be leaders in the Kingdom of God as they respond to Christ’s call to “go and make disciples of all nations.” Whether preparing for work in church roles, international missions, or in their communities, students will grow in their character and receive specific training that enhances their ability to positively influence others.

Courses include biblical studies, evangelism, church planting, youth ministry, leadership, prayer, and worship. The College of Christian Ministries strives to prepare students to teach the Bible, start new ministries, and disciple young believers wherever they may serve.

Course Credits Type Number

The UofN uses two types of credits, FLW (full learning weeks) and LCU (learning component units).

FLW credits are used with traditional residential courses and one of these credits requires a minimum of 50 hours of documented learning activities; these include our normal lectures, small groups, one-on-ones, etc.; and some of these activities are nonformal, in addition to the classroom activities and study assignments.

LCU credits are used for part-time programs like evening courses, intensive seminars, distance learning and other non-residential courses. Each LCU credit requires 25 hours of focused learning activities which can be spread over a period of time.
