Practical Theology Covenant
When students declare one of the majors in the Department of Practical Theology, they commit to participate in a community narrative that begins with the signing of a Community Covenant based on the biblical model of faithfulness and mercy. The covenant includes a commitment to integrity, appropriate conduct, local church ministry, academic and university requirements, a submission of references, and participation in required department activities. The Covenant must be sumitted to the Department of Practical Theology when the major is declared. (This is a new requirement as of fall 2008).
Christian Ministries students are provided with a broad perspective in the field of religion and academic preparation combining theory and professional training.
Students of Youth Ministry gain tools to develop a ministry of theory and practice to apply in future church leadership roles.
The Sports Ministry Minor prepares students to be a sports ministry leader, both in church-based or mission agency programs.
