College of Ministry

Associate in Ministry Leadership

The Associate in Ministry Leadership enables you to earn a two-year degree that both satisfies the educational requirements for minister credentials for the Assemblies of God and that includes critically important supporting courses such as Psychology and Communications. All courses can apply to the BA Ministry degree, making this a good mid-point as you progress towards your educational goals.

Why Ministry Leadership?

In addition to the general goals of the University, completing this program provides learning opportunities which should enable the students to:

  • Integrate biblical and theological knowledge with the practice of ministry and daily life;
  • Demonstrate biblical literacy and exegetical skills;
  • Effectively communicate the gospel;
  • Enter vocational ministry;
  • Provide a foundation of ministry in a non ministerial vocation;
  • Exhibit habits of lifelong learning.

The Associate in Ministry Leadership (AML) fulfills the education requirements for Certification, Licensure, and Ordination within the Assemblies of God. This program may also be applicable to credentialing tracks for other denominations, although students are encouraged to check with their respective denomination for further clarification.
