At the University of Mobile, we know that a call to ministry is a call to preparation. The Center for Christian Calling prepares you with both the theological and practical training needed to effectively and faithfully serve the church around the world.

Our faculty understands the needs of ministry, which is why we have created a program that prepares you for practical ministry. We partner with pastors, missionaries, association directors and parachurch professionals to provide you with opportunities to preach, teach and minister under the mentorship of experienced ministry leaders.

Pursue your calling as a Kingdom professional with a Great Commission mindset.

Apply today and answer your calling.

Our mission is to partner with local churches to equip students for the work of ministry. Our goal is to produce graduates who love God and love people, and who are committed to global disciple-making.

The Center for Christian Calling* experience is based on a foundational model of integrating a Christian worldview with every academic discipline studied. Students are trained to love God with all their hearts through exercising spiritual disciplines. Students are trained to love God with all their strength through experiential learning, including mentor-discipleship, ministry team activities, internships and intercultural ministry.

There are four departments in the Center for Christian Calling:

For students called to a teaching ministry.

For students called to domestic and international cross-cultural ministry.

For students called to pastoral and staff-related church ministry.

For students pursuing master’s and advanced degrees and training in the areas of biblical studies, theological studies, and worship leadership (in collaboration with the Alabama School of the Arts).

*Effective July 1, 2021, the School of Christian Studies becomes the Center for Christian Calling.
