The Department of Biblical Studies has a long history of preparing students for success in ministry. For over fifty years, we have trained students for a variety of ministry opportunities, including, but not limited to, preaching, youth ministry, missions, and the ministry of scholarship. 

Since the late 1980s, our curricular offerings have included graduate programs in Bible and Ministry. We now offer four graduate degrees (see "Programs of Study"), all of which can be completed in a substantially on-line format. If you are interested in taking advantage of the opportunities for preparation in ministry that are available at LCU, please contact us ( or

We continue to thank God for his grace toward us and pray that he will use us all for his purposes!
