The Bible Exposition emphasis is a study of the Word of God more specifically and is designed for those who desire

to serve in Christian ministry or for those who plan to go on for graduate work or seminary.

Biblical Counseling

(Greg Gifford)

This emphasis consists of a study of the principles and aspects of biblical counseling and is designed to prepare God’s

people to meet counseling-related needs wherever they exist with the sufficient and superior resources God provides.

The course of study trains students to counsel people in the local church. It emphasizes the proper interpretation and

specific application of Scripture in ministering to people.

The Christian Education emphasis examines the concepts of Christian education. It is designed for those students who
