A Foundation for Ministry
The Ministry & Missions Department at Huntington University seeks to develop in students the commitments and skills necessary to lead others in growing faithfulness to God. Our curriculum which values critical thinking, problem-solving and creativity is designed to integrate biblical truth, evangelical theology, church history, and educational psychology and methodology.
As a children's ministries major, you will combine core ministry courses
with specifically-designed classes in family and children's ministries.
Your classes will be taught by professors who have served in such roles
within the church or para-church organizations. Our mission is to
“develop thoughtful and faithful leaders who will equip others for
effective ministry.” Discipleship-based in our approach, we will help
you implement Biblically sound strategies for ministry.
Real-World Ministry Experience
The most unique key to our program is the PRIME (Practical Research and Immersion for Ministry Effectiveness) Experience. During this seven-month internship, you’ll be mentored by effective ministry leaders. PRIME experiences are offered in churches and para-church ministries throughout the United States and around the world.
Your opportunities to learn and serve abound at Huntington University. Through extra-curricular activities such as the student organization Global Vision, the Friesen Center for Volunteer Service, and spring break and J-term short-term missions trips, you will gain the knowledge, skills and commitments necessary to lead others toward increasing maturity and faithfulness in their relationship with God.
