|Description:||The Bachelor of Arts in Ministry program of study is designed to train students for multiple types of ministries. In addition to excellent classroom instruction, during their fourth year B.A. (Ministry) students complete a four-month in-depth supervised ministry experience under the direct supervision of a qualified ministry leader in their field of study. During this time, students are exposed to the broad range of ministries within a local church or parachurch ministry. This supervised ministry experience gives opportunity for students to sharpen and focus ministry skills learned in the classroom. Students are also required to complete a minimum of three student ministry assignments. Students completing the B.A. (Ministry) degree will meet many of the academic requirements for ordination in their denomination. The core courses of the degree meet the academic requirements for licensing in The Wesleyan Church; students may elect to complete academic requirements for ordination in The Wesleyan Church. Depending on the selection of track and/or minor, this may necessitate a ninth semester at Kingswood.|
