B.A. in Theology
ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT GOD’S WORLD AND DESIRE TO IMPACT THE NATIONS?
The Bachelor of Arts in Intercultural Ministry is designed to prepare you for ministry into creative access nations and to prepare you for missions work in Canada or around the world.
It is designed for those planning to enter various vocational or lay ministry or continuing studies at a graduate level. Areas of ministry could include education-discipleship and missions ministries of the local church or para-church organizations.
These programs will prepare you for the real and challenging work of God's glocal mission. You will be exposed to hands-on interaction with major moves of God around the world. It will also involve classroom interaction with current mission practitioners who are innovative, effective and fruitful from Canada as well as national, global leaders.
Beyond the classroom, students will be involved in real life relevant ministry experiences locally, in other Canadian settings and globally, tailored to specific interests, callings, and life goals.
The focus is to develop people for effective ministry at home and to prepare for fruitful Global Intercultural work in a wide variety of expressions.
