Meaningful Ministry Begins Here

Experience Learning as You Serve and Grow
Local Church Focus
Pursue your purpose without leaving your calling. Serve your church even as you explore your studies. Local church involvement isn’t just assumed, it’s built into your degree. Knowledge. Application. And ministry. All in one.
Hands-on Ministry Experience
Overseas missions. Nonprofit organizations. Even your local church. Complete two intensive ministry-based courses and engage broken communities with the gospel of Christ. It’s how you discover and elevate your God-given calling, at NGU.
Theology isn’t theory. It’s the foundation of real-world, practical ministry. That’s why your degree is designed to connect in-class learning with in-person ministry. Develop Sunday School classes or create premarital counseling plans. All to fine-tune your ministry experience.
Ministry Beside Experienced & Faithful Disciplers
Study Christian Ministry with Clear Direction
Elevate Your Perspective
You’ll also take Chapel every semester, and Cultural Events for the first four semesters. You earn credit through attendance, and each course counts as half a credit. This is the NGU difference, how you find your peak performance and elevate your perspective, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually.
