“Ministering to the Least of These”
Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me. – Matthew 25:40
Do you have a heart for reaching those in the darkest places? Do you desire to reach out to those in desperate situations like human trafficking victims? Prostitutes? Drug addicts? Prisoners? The poor and needy? Jesus came to seek and save ALL who are lost – even those who are in the most difficult situations of life.
The Evangelism & Compassion degree (two-year program) will teach you how to be a servant and a witness as you minister to those outside the Church who do not know Jesus. You will be equipped to serve in evangelism and compassion ministry in a broad variety of settings. You will essentially learn to be the feet and hands of Jesus wherever you go.
Besides taking such courses like Foundations of Social Justice and Personal Evangelism, you will have opportunity to do ministry weekly in such places as street missions and soup kitchens. You will be able to do prison ministry monthly. You will also embark on two major trips to both an urban and cross-cultural setting. APPLY NOW!
