Piedmont International University

Bachelor of Arts in Christian Ministry


The 130-hour Bachelor of Arts in Ministry degree has nineteen minors that equip students biblically and practically in multiple areas of ministry. Students receive 44 hours of Biblical studies to ground them in God’s Word. In addition to the Biblical Studies, students gain a well-rounded education with 36 hours of general education. This degree provides 50 hours of professional/ministry hours so the student can apply his/her general education and Biblical training in the local church and non-profit ministries. The Bachelor of Arts in Ministry has the advantage of providing ministry training in nineteen areas of ministry, such as sign language, Biblical languages, children’s ministry, church education, coaching and recreational ministry, counseling, English, expanded Bible, history, general ministry, humanities, management for non-profit, international missions, North American church planting, music, pastoral studies, secondary Bible education, student ministries, and worship. The outcome of the Bachelor of Arts in Ministry is the ministry and job placement of our graduates in local churches and non-profit organizations in North America and around the world. Literally, the sun never sets on a continent where a Piedmont International University student has not or is not fulfilling the Great Commission to make disciples of all nations.
