Special Needs Ministry

Effective Ministry For All

God’s love and truth are accessible to all, so shouldn’t ministry be so as well?

With a Bachelor of Science in special needs ministry degree, you will have resources and necessary skills to create and lead ministries which will allow persons with intellectual and physical challenges to participate fully in the life of their church and community.

This degree combines ministry classes with courses in special education to equip you for ministry that is accessible to all!

Real-World Ministry Experience

The most unique aspect of our program is the PRIME (Practical Research and Immersion for Ministry Effectiveness) Experience. During this seven-month internship, experienced ministry leaders will work closely with you and give you practical experiences in ministry that suit your future goals. 

Our students have completed PRIME experiences 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 extracurricular activities such as the student organization Global Vision, the Friesen Center for Service and Experiential Learning, and spring break 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.
