Ministerial Studies Program

Solomon declared that “of making many books there is no end.” While it is impossible to become the master of every one of these books, it is the desire at Union Bible College to prepare each student to become the master of the most important book—the Bible.

This is accomplished through the Department of Ministerial Studies. We recognize the great responsibility society places upon the ministry today with its secularized learning, seductive language, and sensual lifestyle. Such a corrupt society demands from ministers “an answer to every man that asketh them a reason of the hope that is in them.” To give this answer we require each ministerial student to be thoroughly acquainted with the scriptures in principle and practice.

Goals

A ministerial student from UBC should be able to:

  1. Demonstrate knowledge of pastoral duties through practical application.
  2. Articulate the Gospel message through sermons in corporate and individual evangelism.
  3. Proclaim a bible message for the purpose of edification.
  4. Demonstrate servant leadership in pastoral, community, and cultural settings
  5. Assimilate into team setting.
