About ChristianMinistryEDU.org

Finding paths to the ministry through education and enlightenment.

How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”

~ Romans 10:14-15

Being called into the service of the Lord is a timeless expression of faith and dedication. All the choices and options that you have for following that calling in the modern world, though, can be a bit overwhelming.

ChristianMinistryEDU.org is here to help students of faith just like you. Our mission is to make it easier to pursue your passion and joy for a career in the ministry by laying out all your degree options clearly. We aim to help you find a school that fits perfectly with your spiritual calling.

The very roots of the modern college education run through institutions that were founded for the purpose of educating students for the priesthood.

For hundreds of years, a university education was synonymous with a study of Canon Law and Christian philosophy, with liberal arts courses in rhetoric, reasoning, and Latin to prepare preachers for their duties. In those days, all universities were Christian schools.

Picking a degree in Christian ministry today has become a lot more complicated. Pastors and ministers need an even more intensive education, exploring comparative religion in theological studies, Biblical hermeneutics, and even psychology and counseling alongside those traditional liberal studies. Today’s pastors have to be ready to begin ministering to small parishes in quiet country towns, to spread the Word through overseas missions, or to work as a team in vast megachurches with thousands of congregants in services broadcast live over the internet.

You get the knowledge and skills you need to step confidently into those roles only through the right degrees from the right universities. And those are exactly the programs ChristianMinistryEDU.org is here to help you find.

Who We Are

ChristianMinistryEDU.org is produced by a small, unaffiliated web publishing group that serves as a truly independent voice for Christian education. We receive funding through a small number of carefully selected schools who advertise with us, and we keep our advertising restricted to schools that we believe reflect the true spirit and light in Christian ministry.

There are, it may be, so many kind of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification.

~ 1 Corinthians 14:10

Like any good congregation, our contributors come together from a wide variety of experiences and perspectives. Those diverse backgrounds offer a stronger base for offering you clear, comprehensive, and uncompromising knowledge to prepare you for Christian ministry in the modern world.
