Theology and Global Church Ministries Department

As the national university of the Assemblies of God, Evangel is the place to study and prepare for a life in church ministry, missionary work, and theology.

Program Overview

The undergraduate program draws upon Central Bible College, Assemblies of God Theological Seminary and Evangel University’s combined 190 years of experience in preparing pastors, missionaries, chaplains, and other Christian educators for Spirit-empowered leadership in ministries worldwide.

Integrating the best of all three traditions, the school delivers enhanced ministerial preparation in a variety of traditional, hybrid, and accelerated formats, all the way from bachelor’s to doctoral degrees in Bible and Theology, Ministry, Missiology, Philosophy and Intercultural Studies. In association with the Center for Holy Land Studies, and the seminary offer enhanced contextual learning in the Land of the Bible.

Student Testimonial

The professors in the Theology & Global Church Ministries Department taught me that what we think about God will affect how we live our lives for God. Study became more than a mental exercise, but a form of worship through which to encounter God. Evangel gave me an incredible foundation for a life of ministry and worship.
