Online Bachelor of Arts in Ministry Leadership
With our Bachelor of Arts in Ministry Leadership Degree Online, you can heed your calling to the specific type of ministry that you feel called to. Though there are differences between serving in church leadership and ministering in non-church settings, they both take a person with commitment, integrity, and heart. They also require specialized training, and that’s where Northwest University can help.
The online Bachelor in Ministry Leadership is designed for students who desire the broadest foundation upon which to build their ministry and who would like the option of advancing into a master’s degree. Our program is holistic and engaging, with an emphasis on a thorough core curriculum requirement coupled with two years of Bible, theology, and practical ministry courses.
