The major prepares students to minister in a global cross-cultural setting. It provides a wide range of foundational knowledge and skills with specific focus in a mission worldview. The College of Theology and Christian Ministries will help them work through the appropriate steps leading to appointment as missionaries by the Church of the Nazarene or other mission agencies. The major does not meet ordination requirements in the Church of the Nazarene. However, they can fulfill ordination requirements by also taking the Christian Ministry minor. Seminary is recommended for further preparation.
