Bible and religion at EMU
EMU Bible and religion graduates are working all over the globe in churches, service organizations and schools, making a difference with Anabaptist and Mennonite core values of faith, non-violence and service.
With nearby resources like a seminary on campus and the Center for Justice and Peacebuilding, a world renowned graduate program, as well as an active campus ministries team, opportunities for worship and study of faith abound.
Opportunities to lead and learn
Opportunities to develop your skills in real-world settings are plentiful on campus, too. Take on a leadership role on your residence hall, or become a pastoral or ministry assistant and lead chapel services.

The in-the-field Ministry Inquiry Program encourages students to explore pastoral ministry and test their gifts and sense of call first-hand. Participants work under the supervision of a pastor and are involved in many aspects of a minister’s life and work.
