School of Christian Ministries

School of Christian Ministries


Our mission is to help students prepare for God’s call to ministry through the most effective, biblically based undergraduate theological education and hands-on ministry training program. Our goal is to produce some of the most influential Christian leaders in the world today!


 The School of Christian Ministries experience is based on a four-year highly intentional process of training that prepares individuals for real-life ministry. This process includes three major areas of ministry preparation which we call the H3 Model, a revolutionary approach to ministry training based on the Gospels. The H3 Model provides a rigorous academic curriculum that trains your head, a supportive spiritual environment to encourage your heart, and a variety of groundbreaking opportunities to serve with your hands.
