BA in Preaching Ministry

The Preaching Ministry bachelor's degree is designed to prepare students for entry-level, servant leadership positions in the church as preaching ministers, associate ministers, campus ministers, and so forth. The focus is on understanding both the message to be preached and the messenger who preaches it. Graduates are encouraged to pursue further education (Master of Divinity) through the Seminary. Preaching Ministry is also offered as a minor option. For further information on the LCU preaching program, contact the program director, Dr. LC Sutton.
