Bible and Religion at EMU
Jesus Christ calls us to humble ourselves and serve others daily. As followers of Christ in the Anabaptist tradition — in which EMU is rooted — students in EMU Bible and religion classes delve into Scripture, engage in classroom discussion and enjoy 1:1 interaction with professors.
Discern Your Call
As a Bible and religion major or minor, you will develop self-awareness and explore your sense of call to ministry in a variety of settings… behind a pulpit, in a hospital, at a camp, as an advocate for social justice, as a change agent, or in another profession. You will be prepared to pursue seminary or other graduate studies.
Cross-cultural study, and emphasis on creation care, non-violent peacebuilding and service to others as Jesus modeled, are core to EMU Bible and religion studies. All EMU students take at least one Bible course. For many, even though it is outside their major, it becomes a significant time of spiritual formation and personal growth.
Hands-On Learning and Exploration
Bible and religion students join in and often lead campus worship experiences and serve as ministry or pastoral assistants in residence halls. All students, whether they are a department major or not, are invited to explore pastoral ministry and test their gifts first-hand through the Ministry Inquiry Program. Access to activities at Eastern Mennonite Seminary on our campus provide a special opportunity for those considering further theological study.
