Transforming the world through theology and Christian ministry
The Theology and Christian Ministry programs at Trinity focus on understanding God, Christianity, and what it means to be a Christian in today’s world. Students learn, through the study of God and methods of ministry, how they are called to serve using their gifts and vocation. All students engage in field work relevant to their calling and interests.
As a biblical studies major at Trinity, you will have the opportunity to explore the word of God in close detail, with a foundation built on our strong liberal arts tradition and Reformed worldview. In your academic studies, you will focus on specific sections of the Bible, such as the historical books, the prophets, the gospels, and the epistles.
When you minor in theology at Trinity, you will be prepared for you for a vocation in churches, non-profit organizations, schools, and mission agencies or to continue your studies in graduate or seminary school.
You feel a call to the ministry, and you believe that your spiritual and professional goals should involve a Master’s degree. Instead of taking a separate journey for your Bachelor’s degree and graduate work, you can begin at Trinity, where we offer a five-year path to a Master of Divinity through our partnership with Northern Seminary, made possible by a generous grant from the Kern Family Foundation.
Dr. Ben Ribbens hopes that students in his theology classes develop a new or renewed passion for reading and investigating the Bible by investigating Scripture together and acquiring skills for reading. “I also hope that through their engagement with Scripture, they have an experience with the Word, i.e., the Son, and that they are transformed more and more into his likeness.”
