Degree Overview

Maranatha’s missions program employs a Bible curriculum that emphasizes core doctrines and biblical literacy and also prepares you to handle competing philosophies, current trends, and cross-cultural issues. In response to challenges from urbanization, technology, pluralism, and restricted access countries, this program braces you with a biblical understanding of worldviews and includes a supplemental linguistics curriculum. A Missions minor can be combined with a major such as business or education to allow you to minister effectively overseas as a teacher or business person.
