General Ministry

B.A. in Biblical Studies – General Ministry Emphasis

Numerous ministries apart from the Sunday sermon await the members of a congregation who are willing to use what the Lord has given them.  Sadly, the painful reality is that many churches do not have people in their congregations equipped to minister effectively in these areas.  MBC designed the general ministry concentration to ready God’s people for service wherever they find themselves, whether it be Sunday school or summer camp.

By pursuing the general ministry concentration, students will have the opportunity to examine a broad array of ministries to see which direction the Lord may take them.  Students will also learn to follow biblical leadership and give biblical guidance to those who follow them.  They will be involved in one-on-one discipleship both in their own lives and in the lives of others.

Students who are pursuing youth ministry, camp ministry, or ministry in a para-church organization can tailor this program to their individual needs.

In addition to the general objectives of the B.A. degree, students completing this concentration will be able to:

  1. Provide leadership to ministries of the local body of believers or para-church organizations.
  2. Demonstrate a breadth of knowledge and skills for a variety of ministries.

See the MBC Catalog for more information such as core curriculum courses, concentration specific courses, and general education requirements.

NOTE:  MBC electives may be filled through any other class offered at MBC that is not already required.  These include, but are not limited to, Greek, Hebrew, additional Bible exposition classes, music classes, or classes required for another concentration.
