What Can I Do With This Missions Degree?

Our scholars and graduates serve in Christian missions around the world. Some minister in nations taking the gospel to people who have never heard. Some serve in local churches as pastors, youth ministers, children's ministers, worship ministers, or in other capacities. Others interested in Christian education and evangelism are planting churches and reaching people other churches are not able to reach. Still others minister through national organizations like Fellowship of Christian Athletes or through denominational agencies like the Kentucky Baptist Convention and the Southern Baptist Convention. Serving God might take you anywhere and we are ready to help you follow God's call!
