Graduating Students

College of Religious Studies

Whether students are seeking to serve local churches, or Christian camps, work as advocates in social work for community organizations, teach religion, or are planning to continue their education in graduate school, the Religious Studies department at John Melvin Christian College seeks to prepare students in both majors and minors programs with a faith-filled future in life and ministry. JMCC’s Religious Studies programs are enriched with a deep understanding of the Bible and promote Christian goals that foster Christian faith and knowledge that are incorporated in all areas of life, learning, and service. Students are encouraged to grow in their relationship with the Lord by increasing their knowledge and understanding of the Scripture. Our college offers degrees in Biblical Studies,  Christian Coaching, Christian Business, and Christian Counseling.  Students earning a Biblical Studies degree can take courses that focus on preparing for Christian ministry, interpreting Scripture, understanding the Bible in both the Old and New Testament, tracing church history, and preparing for spiritual warfare and divine healing. Other courses will focus on the Biblical History of Israel, Christian Living, and Systematic Theology. JMCC’s Religious studies courses will be taught by certified religious instructors with years of teaching and local church experience. The Religious Studies faculty and John Melvin Christian College’s pastor help students discern God’s calling upon their lives in course study, motivational programs, and on-campus chapel services. In addition, the goal of the religious studies program is to assist students in determining how their skills and passions prepare them to understand the implications of the student’s faith and life mission.
