Pre-Ministerial Degrees & Programs

In addition to majors in Biblical and Theological Studies and Youth Ministry, Bethel offers an opportunity for students pursuing other majors to explore ministry as a career and prepare for master’s level ministry degrees through Bethel’s Antioch Way program.

Antioch Way is a program, funded by the Kern Family Foundation, can be combined with almost any major. Program participants are placed in a cohort of peers who take retreats together and enroll in several required courses, all of which meet Bethel’s General Education requirements. During the junior year, each student enters into a mentoring relationship with a ministry leader that culminates in a paid ministry apprenticeship during the senior year.
