School of Bible & Ministry
A student may declare a Bible major with concentration in Pastoral Ministry. For further information on this major, refer to the information under the listing “Bible.”
The Pastoral Ministry minor prepares people for serving Christ in a variety of ways, especially as a bi-vocational or volunteer leader. With the basic concept of Milligan College that “every Christian is a minister” of some type, this minor can prepare people specifically for service in a church setting or a church-related organization. Classes with this focus form a significant part of each major in the area of biblical learning, and the use of them as a minor provides a supplement to whatever other major is selected, positioning a person for effective service in a broad range of roles.
Milligan College expects those who graduate with Pastoral Ministry minors to:
- Be prepared to assist in a leadership role of ministry in the church
- Understand enough of the workings of a church staff to assume a position of responsibility in a church
- Have a good sampling of biblical, church historical, and practical studies to encourage lifelong learning
- Provide a solid example, as a humble student of scripture and the world,, of following Jesus in daily living
See “Bible” for the major and information about specific concentrations in various forms of Christian ministry.
