The Christian Ministries minor is designed to inform and train Trinity students for active involvement in the ministry of the local church while preparing for other career distinctives. Students who complete this minor will be equipped for selected ministries in the local church or for entry-level positions with parachurch organizations. A Christian Ministries Minor consists of 25 hours, including 13 required hours and 12 elective hours from Christian Ministries courses. Six elective hours must be courses at the 300-400 level. The goals of the program are as follows:

  • To equip men and women with skills applicable to the varied ministries of the local church
  • To provide practical training and experience that will help in the development of such abilities as administration, counseling, music, and teaching
  • To encourage commitment to and involvement in the local church

Some courses selected for Christian Ministries may also fulfill general education requirements.
