    What Will You Learn?

    In all of the programs at CSU, you’ll be interacting with small class sizes and professors who really care and desire to mentor you. You’ll not only receive quality academics to prepare you for your career, but discipleship to prepare you for life.

    Handle the Scriptures accurately

    Build a strong foundation to serve well in your unique ministry setting in Bible and theology, life and ministry and church and culture. You will get multiple levels of instruction in the original biblical language of Greek to hone your Bible study skills. 

    Serve the church effectively

    Gain practical, hands-on experience through an internship or integrated ministry project. You will be guided by mentors who have served and are serving well in teaching and local church ministries.

    Love God supremely; love all people equally

    Build character, competency and commitment for pastoral ministry. You will complete units of course-related practical ministry, including evangelism and Bible teaching.

    Your Courses

    Each of your courses will be taught from a biblical worldview, and you’ll learn with an intimate group of peers led by professors who care about your success.

    Accelerated Pastoral major, Didsbury, Alberta, Canada

    I love that I can take seminary courses alongside my undergraduate courses. It allowed me to complete my program two years sooner than if I had done each degree separately. I also appreciate the one-year paid internship that is built into my program. It will allow me to get ministry experience without being financially burdened.

                                                                                                           

    Program Highlights 

    • You will round out your education with a paid internship or integrated ministry project to give you practical work experience alongside a sound ministry mentor.
    • You can complete the program entirely online or in an immersive on-campus setting in as few as five years.

    Prepare for Ministry.

    Fuel your eagerness to reach people for Christ! You will be equipped with the leadership skills, knowledge and experience to effectively make an impact on the world for Christ.
