Although there are benefits of attending college face-to-face, we recognize that some life situations make that impossible. For instance, those who are already serving in Christian ministry, particularly in rural churches, typically have limited access to theological training and feel unable to move geographically to locations where it is available. Such circumstances make an accredited, online ministry degree program an attractive option.
The Online Bachelor of Arts in Ministry (EMIN) is an online ministry degree program at Palm Beach University that offers a curriculum identical to the on-ground B.A. in Ministry. This program will prepare you to build and grow effective Christian ministries and jump right into a broad variety of ministries upon graduation.
The University's unique guidance focuses on biblical, historical, theological and practical studies in a curriculum both created and taught by PBA's full-time school of ministry faculty. Combined with our thriving community connections, it helps you develop skills to improve the lives of others through your efforts within a church, parachurch or even through secular agencies.
This program is specially designed for students who want to complete a bachelor’s degree and have a calling to ministry careers or those who have a bachelor’s degree in another discipline who aspire to an advanced degree in ministry (M.Div.).
Our program delivers specific benefits such as:
