World Missions and Christian Studies

 
The program has as its base Biblical and theological foundations for Christian Ministry. Without a strong Biblical and theological background, students would have little to no foundation from which to build a solid educational ministry in Christ. What students will find in the Christian Studies Department, as well as the rest of Truett-McConnell College, are caring faculty who will challenge the students to develop the whole person-spirit, mind, and body-in the classrooms, in the chapels, and in the social life of the college and to grow in their knowledge of solid biblical theology and educational practice.
