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.

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.

Culturally Relevant. Biblically Sound.

When Jason Deuman was looking for a degree in theology, he wanted one that would challenge him to effectively engage with today's culture. Most importantly, he sought a program that was biblically sound. "I was taught by great professors who were always willing to wrestle with tough questions—but always from a biblical perspective. At NU, I learned how to think and teach the Bible well."
