Graduates Who Plan to be Nazarene Ministers
Please Read Carefully
When you finish the Bachelor of Arts in Ministry–Pastoral Ministries OR Pastoral Leadership degree, you have met the educational requirements for ordination as elder in the Church of the Nazarene. When you finish the Bachelor of Arts in Ministry–Christian Educational Ministries degree, you have met the educational requirements for ordination as deacon in the Church of the Nazarene. When you finish the Ministry Preparation Program Certificate Program, you have met the course of study educational requirements for ordination (elder or deacon). However, our college degree is not a substitute for the Certificate of Graduation from the Ministerial Course of Study. The needed Certificate is not a function of the Bible College but of the General Church and the District on which you will serve.
