Belmont University’s School of Religion is launching a new evening program for working adults who feel called to change careers and join the ministry. The School of Religion’s Bachelor of Arts in Ministry will be offered only via evening classes in conjunction with Belmont’s University College program, which provides college programs for working adults. “If you are called to the ministry, you are also called to prepare,” said Dr. Darrell Gwaltney, Dean of the School of Religion. “This new program is for adults who feel called into ministry later in life, so they can prepare to answer that call.”
Some of the courses in the 30-credit-hour evening program include Christian Ethics, Understanding Church History, Education in the Church, Dynamics of the Local Church, Pastoral Care, Missions and Church Development, Worship and Preaching, and Servant Leadership.
Details of the Bachelor of Arts in Ministry evening program are posted on the School of Religion’s website, under the “New Majors and Minors” link.
