Christian Leadership + Nonprofit Administration

Christian Leadership/Nonprofit Administration

These majors tie together naturally. You might explore:

  • A church leadership position with youth ministry or camping and retreat coordination;
  • Graduate school in administration, nonprofit administration or seminary; or
  • Staff positions in a parachurch organization or program, such as Lutheran Social Services, Fellowship of Christian Athletes or Compassion International.

Nonprofits make up one of the fastest growing and most available job markets. You can earn an income and do something you are passionate about. This combination of majors is designed to be:

  • Relevant, practical and contemporary: You’ll take theory classes along with classes that focus on practical management and administration skills.
  • Innovative and engaging: Nearly half of your courses will have you apply what you learn in the classroom to real-world situations. Students also have regular opportunities to conduct research and present at conferences.
  • Related to the global environment: Whether you take world religions or take part in an immersion experience in Uganda, you will have plenty of opportunities to experience global perspectives.
