College of Christian Ministries University of the Nations

The College of Christian Ministries recognizes and responds to the great need to equip Christian leaders for service in the Kingdom of God, whether that be through specific mission and church roles or in the broader community. Courses in evangelism, missions (frontier, urban and specific ethnic or religious groups) church planting, biblical studies, leadership, worship and intercession, and youth ministries incorporate personal character development along with specific training and focused prayer towards the goal of obeying Christ’s command to “go and make disciples of all nations…teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” (Matt. 28:19-20.)

Whether participating in a School of Missions, or joining in a practical pastoral care seminar, students learn, work, and worship together, with the goal of “seeking first the Kingdom of God” in the context of the broader mission of the University of the Nations: to know God, and to make Him known.

Graduates of these training programs (both those who work towards a degree and those who take one or two specialized training programs) have gone on to start new ministries, plant churches cross-culturally, train new believers, teach the Bible, set up youth ministry outreaches, and much more. Programs are individually planned with the student’s calling and desired learning goals in mind.
