recreation & sports ministry
The major in recreation and sports ministry prepares you to plan, direct, and initiate church based or community recreation programs and equips you to use recreation and sports as a tool for outreach in the community.
Gain full-time experience while earning your degree
The student will take a combination of courses from areas of recreation management, Bible and religion, missions and ministry and participate in a seven-month field immersion ministry, called PRIME, or Practical Research and Immersion for Ministry Effectiveness.
Your future in focus
We will equip you to develop the commitments and skills necessary to lead others in growing faithfulness to God. The curriculum is designed to integrate biblical truth, evangelical theology, psychology, foundations of individual and group leadership, administration and programming in a recreational setting, and the opportunity for service learning.
Best of both worlds
The major in recreation and sports ministry offers courses and faculty mentoring from both the Ministry and Missions Department and the Kinesiology and Recreation Management Department.
