Division of Bible, Religion and Ministry (BRM)


We love students! We look forward to the opportunity to teach and mentor you as you pursue your calling. Our goal is to develop you into scholars and ministers who passionately pursue the advancement of God’s kingdom. By the time you complete the program you will have the expertise to interpret Scripture, design an interactive curriculum, translate ancient documents, develop cultural intelligence, and lead a ministry toward health. Furthermore, we take seriously the concept of community learners. Learning doesn't just happen in the classroom; eating lunches together, playing bocce ball and Frisbee golf on the grounds, and having game nights in our homes provide a context for mentoring relationships.
