Bible and Religion at EMU
EMU Bible and religion students delve deep into Scripture, do their own spiritual formation work, and find their purpose in life as followers of Jesus; they become equipped to serve the common good close to home and around the world.
As a graduate, you will be prepared to attend seminary or graduate studies, or begin immediately to serve in churches, service organizations, schools, hospitals, and community organizations. You will develop self awareness and skills to make a difference through a commitment to Anabaptist Mennonite values of cross-cultural understanding, care for creation, non-violent peacebuilding and service to others as Jesus modeled.
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. A unique benefit to Bible and religion students also lies in being on the same campus as Eastern Mennonite Seminary.
