Minister God’s Word

More than ever, servant-minded men are needed to minister God’s Word faithfully in the church and to reach the lost for Christ. To meet that need, PCC’s pastoral ministries program provides Bible-intensive training and hands-on service opportunities.

Becoming an effective minister requires deep understanding of and love for God’s Word. Because PCC’s ministerial major is Bible-intensive, students have daily opportunities to learn God’s Word in classes, Campus Church, chapel, and various avenues of ministry.

Bible classes combine academic instruction with spiritual application to prepare students’ minds and hearts for service, while specialized classes teach how to incorporate practical, biblical methods into specific areas of church ministry. To learn the art of expository preaching, ministerial students begin preaching in the first semester as freshmen, and continue preaching every semester until graduation.

Students learn from caring Bible faculty with ministry experience, who count it an honor to train the next generation of preachers.

Were it not for God’s grace and the instruction I received at PCC, I would not be prepared to meet the challenges that come with church ministry.
