The wide variety of courses within the Christian Ministry minor will give you a taste of the potential of ministry. Whatever your major, the minor offers a chance to explore an interest in Christian ministry and receive further academic training and preparation for either personal or professional reasons.

- Emphasis on FPU’s Christian heritage
- Experienced and highly-rated faculty

This minor is ideal for people pursuing careers in Christian non-profit organizations that require specific training found in professional majors. As just one example, students interested in areas such as children’s ministry or church administration could pair this program with early childhood development or organizational leadership. This minor is also beneficial for students in any field who seek preparation for ministry as a lay person in their local church.
