Warner’s ministry department provides spiritually-minded students with broad options and allows them to engage with academic preparation that complements their calling through our Bible, Theology & Ministry major. Multiple ministry-leadership opportunities are also available on campus, including chapel, small groups, among many others. These options prepare students not only for the role of a pastor, but the many other available options inside of church ministry.
