Eastern University Launches 100% Online BA in Ministry Leadership

St. Davids, PA: Eastern University is excited to announce it is now offering a 100% online Bachelor’s degree in Ministry Leadership. This program, housed within Palmer College, is designed to provide impactful, relevant ministry education within a format that is flexible,  accessible, and affordable.

Courses are taught by experienced faculty with real-world expertise who provide cutting edge ministry scholarship. Students will also enjoy the flexibility of being able to complete coursework on their own time. 

The first start will be August 2024, with subsequent start dates every 7 weeks. Tuition and fees are incredibly affordable – students will pay only $2,500-$7,500 out-of-pocket per year. The entire 4-year degree will cost as low as $9,900 and at most, $29,900.

“I am thrilled about the addition of this program to Palmer College, which will open the door for so many new students seeking to pursue a career in ministry. Rooted in Eastern’s core values of Faith, Reason, and Justice, the program is designed to equip students for impactful, relevant ministry.”

Dr. Kimberlee Johnson, Dean of Palmer Theological Seminary and College

The online version of the program builds upon the on-campus BA in Ministry Leadership, which debuted last year. Both programs take a holistic approach, aiming to create well-grounded students that are equipped to do the work they are called to do in life. By focusing on the development of students as whole persons, including their minds, hearts, and hands, the program will create ministry leaders of the future with the ability to identify current cultural trends and respond accordingly.

“This program will provide excellent ministry education that is affordable, flexible, and attainable. Our diverse, Christ-centered community welcomes open dialogue and critical thinking, allowing students to explore their theological beliefs while receiving practical ministry training and collaborating with peers.”

Jonathan Hobbs, Ministry Leadership Program Director

Career paths for this degree range from Pastor to Youth Ministry Director to Executive of a Christian non-profit and more.  Learn more about the Online BA in Ministry Leadership.
