All Christian Ministries students participate in a reflective ministry internship, a hope-filled mentoring experience that provides first-hand exposure to diverse areas of ministry under appropriate supervision. Throughout the program you will learn what it means to worship God in faithfulness and how to build bridges in love across cultural boundaries. Students who study together have several common interests: a passion for the Lord, a love for people, and a desire to see this world transformed for the glory of God. All students in the program seek to enhance their understanding and skills in ministry, whether they are entering or already participating in Christian service. Does this describe you? If so, Trinity Florida will prepare you both theologically and practically in the areas of personal maturity, relational competence, and ministry skills to engage contemporary culture through Christ for His kingdom.

The Christian Ministries major is part of Trinity Florida’s undergraduate program, which offers unique opportunities for learners to enhance their professional goals through accelerated education.
