Career Opportunities in Christian Leadership

This program was designed for positions that are in great demand in the Christian world. Our ‘why statement’ reflects this.


Because the world needs Christian leaders who are entrepreneurial in method and mission yet shaped by scripture, tradition and reason.

Churches need good people to do the kinds of work we are training students to do. It is very common for churches to hire people to do youth ministry or children’s ministry who have no experience or training in those areas. There are good full-time jobs regularly being posted out there, and with our training, you would in most instances be the only person trained in that specific area.

The flexibility of this program allows it to be applied to almost any area of church-related work. For instance, if you are interested in being a church camp director, a minister of music or a church administrator, there are good full-time jobs regularly being posted in these kinds of areas as well. Very few people have actual training for these fields of service.

Imagine going to a job interview to be a camp director and you have an actual degree in Christian Leadership with a focus on Christian camping ministry. You can almost be certain that no one else applying with be trained with that kind of specificity. That would give you a great advantage!

Talk to us about the career opportunities for positions in Christian Leadership. There are many; here in the USA and abroad.
