A calling requires preparation. Our religion program focuses on preparing pastors and Bible workers for excellence in ministry through Biblical understanding, personal application, church leadership and administration, and evangelism. Classroom work is balanced by application in mission trips and our student-conducted School of Evangelism, which results in baptisms every year.
Graduates are interviewed every year by conference presidents within the Southwestern Union as well as from outside the Union. Employment opportunities throughout North America are expected to increase in the next few years as many pastors will be retiring from active ministry.
The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.” --Luke 10:2. Not everyone is qualified to serve as a pastor, a missionary or a Bible worker. Are you? God may be calling you.
