Sports Ministry Minor

The sports ministry minor comprises 17 units that prepare the student to serve as a sports ministry leader in church-based or mission agency programs. Many American churches use sports or recreation to accomplish their mission, and students in this minor study the historical, theological, biblical, and philosophical aspects of competition and leisure time activities, and how sports and recreation can be used to serve others. Coursework challenges students in the classroom and in field experiences so they emerge as leaders in the growing sports ministry arena.

Successful completion of the minor requires a 2.5 cumulative GPA in all coursework required for the minor.
