Share the Gospel in any profession you choose. This highly-customizable minor provides additional specialization in several ministry areas of interest.

Our flexible ministry minor is easily added to any number of majors offered at Northwestern. Through this minor, our vision is to prepare volunteer or bi-vocational ministers to understand their calling and lead others to become fully dedicated followers of Jesus. We seek to equip them to study and teach the Bible in small groups, youth groups, and one-on-one relationships.

Since fifty percent of this major can be used to fulfill Core Curriculum requirements through courses such as Biblical Interpretation for Study, Relationships, Human Sexuality, and Ministry in a Globalized World, most students only need to complete an additional 9 credits in order to complete this minor. Christian Service credits and Ministry Internships can also be completed as a part of this minor.
