SSU’s Department of Ministry Studies provides a rich training ground for people who would like to devote their working careers to various forms of church or mission. We also provide a way forward for people that would like to grow in their own personal spiritual development so that their lives will be enriched no matter what career path they choose. Most of our work is at the graduate level (assuming a prerequisite undergraduate degree or equivalent) but we do have programs that are well-suited to individuals without this kind of educational background. We are here to help people grow as thoughtful, caring Christians who will love God, be led by His Spirit, and effectively care for people in whatever circumstances they find themselves.
We offer two Ministry program options. Both are designed to be completed by module. This allows you to remain in your job, church, home, etc, while also completing your studies at SSU from a distance with periodic two-week visits to our campus.
