Bachelor of Arts in Ministry - Biblical Studies

A Four-Year Program (120 credits)
Program Coordinator: Ritchie White

If you are seeking to impact today's diverse world for Christ, Prairie's Bachelor of Arts in Ministry - Biblical Studies will provide you with the solid biblical foundation you will need. It is well suited for those who simply want to study "lots of Bible and theology." In our increasingly pluralistic world the Church needs Christians who can think well and in a distinctively Christian way. The BAM – Biblical Studies program is a highly flexible course of study that fosters a deep understanding of Scripture and theology in the context of contemporary culture.

Program Objectives

Prairie's BA Ministry - Biblical Studies program will equip you to:

  • Study, interpret and apply Scripture.
  • Practice the essentials of contextually sensitive faith and ministry.
  • Realize the global mission of God and your role in it.
  • Appreciate the importance of community for the Christian life.
  • Develop your gifts and passions for the benefit of others.
  • Think and communicate with clarity and precision.

Expanded Opportunities

Your training will prepare you to pursue various forms of vocational or lay ministry as well as lifelong leadership in your community of faith and local culture. You may also choose to further your education with graduate-level studies in Theology, Christian Studies, Divinity or Ministry.
