Children's Ministry - B.S.

Purpose

The Children's Ministry major consists of a program of 46 credit hours designed to prepare a student to serve in a church staff position such as a director of children's ministry. The Children's Ministry major also prepares students to serve in various para-church organizations (that serve the needs of children) as well as giving needed preparation for students who intend to seek employment in church-related pre-schools and day care centers. The completion of this major does not fulfill all of the educational requirements for ordination in The Wesleyan Church.
