Our goal is to see our students involved in ministry following their training. Some students are already engaged in full or part-time ministry before they enter our programs. Others will seek employment with churches or other church-related organizations after they graduate. Still others will use our degrees as "stepping stones" to other degree programs. Our placement rates reflect these realities.
Of our 2017-18 graduates, 4 of 7 (57.14%) are currently working in full-time ministry.
