Patriot Bible University has four undergraduate degrees in the School of Ministerial Studies:

  • Bachelor in Biblical Studies
  • Bachelor in Pastoral Studies
  • Bachelor in Evangelism & Missions
  • Bachelor in Christian Counseling

Master and Doctor of Ministry degrees are also available in these majors.

The degrees in Biblical Studies are for anyone who primarily wants to deepen their knowledge of the Bible. This may include those teaching Bible studies, Sunday school classes and Christian seminars. Any Christian worker would benefit from a major in Biblical Studies.

Pastoral Ministries degrees are primarily for those who are preparing for or have responsibility for both preaching and pastoral duties in a local congregation, whether on a full-time, bivocational or interim basis.

A degree in Evangelism and Missions is especially useful for missionaries, evangelists, lay people with a heart for outreach, volunteers who plan to spend time in a missionary or evangelism context, and Christian workers who want to strengthen his or her effectiveness in these critical kingdom skills.

The Christian Counseling degrees are for anyone who provides pastoral or biblical counseling to others. This is distinct from both clinical counseling and licensed professional counseling. Biblical principles are used to help others find solutions to their relational and emotional problems through a right relationship to Jesus Christ and the application of God’s Word to their lives. Often pastors use this major to deepen their shepherding skills, but the principles are just as applicable for those in women’s ministries, jail ministries or family ministries.

Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. – 2 Timothy 4:2
