Christian formation and discipleship studies support the mission of the Department of Religion with the study of church mission in relation to the formation and discipleship of children, youth, and adults in local churches and para-church ministries. In addition to selected studies in biblical literature, theology, ethics, and church history, students engage in disciplined theological reflection on ministry skills and field experiences to bridge theory and practice in anticipated areas of vocational, church staff, and volunteer ministries.
