Why Major in Ministry Leadership?

The Ministry Leadership program prepares students for dynamic ministry and transformative leadership in multiple contexts. Our professors have rich real-world experience and are passionate about coming alongside the next generation of leaders as they discern their call and prepare to serve effectively. At Eastern University, the celebration of ethnic and theological diversity is a pillar of our educational philosophy.  It is also a reflection of our belief that ministry is done best when we know how to respectfully engage with people who see the world differently.

“Eastern’s program allowed me to apply valuable ministry and leadership skills and knowledge to my own context of Young Life. Through the program, my dependence on and relationship with the Lord grew as well. Earning my degree at Eastern through this program was an excellent experience and absolutely the right choice for me.”
