Mission and Ministry Majors

The faculty members of the Department of Missions and Ministry at Cumberlands are dedicated to providing the best possible training to students interested in missions and ministry. Experienced ministers and accomplished scholars, they will guide you as you develop the skills to mature in your Christian faith and commitment and to minister for Christ in the 21st century. You will hone your skills and develop strategies for serving Christ in the United States and around the world through evangelism, church planting, discipleship, and personal, compassionate ministry to all people.

Whether you plan to pursue a seminary degree immediately after completing your university studies or you plan to move directly into Christian ministry, UC’s program will prepare you to take your place in Christian service. You can earn a B.S. in one of five majors (Missions, Church Planting, Youth and Family Ministry, Christian Studies, or Christian Ministries) or you can earn a B.A. by studying a biblical or modern foreign language in addition to your major. Minors are available in Missions, Church Planting, Youth and Family Ministry, and Missions and Ministry.


What Can I Do With This Degree?

Our graduates serve in Christian missions around the world. Some minister in nations taking the gospel to people who have never heard. Some serve in local churches as pastors, youth ministers, children's ministers, worship ministers, or in other capacities. Others are planting churches and reaching and discipling people other churches are not able to reach. Still others minister through national organizations like Fellowship of Christian Athletes or through denominational agencies like the Kentucky Baptist Convention and the Southern Baptist Convention. Serving God might take you anywhere and we are ready to help you follow God's call!
