Indianapolis offers affordable, localized ministry degree programs from an accredited institution with more than 120 years of experience in Christian education. Johnson University has partnered with six Indianapolis-area churches to provide small, faith-based programs providing meaningful learning opportunities.
These full-time programs integrate small classroom learning with hands-on experience and a mentorship at any of the six partner churches and ministries in the greater Indianapolis area: Greenwood Christian Church, Indian Creek Christian Church, Park Chapel Christian Church, Plainfield Christian Church, White River Christian Church, and BLOC Ministries.
Current RESIDENCY degree options include a Bachelor’s in Strategic Ministry (for which students spend their senior year in Indianapolis) and a Master’s in Strategic Ministry (completed entirely in the Indianapolis area).
"The Strategic Ministry degree helped me think critically and live out leadership in a variety of contexts. Real-world application allows you to put into action what you're learning all in the same day. When it came time for me to launch into ministry, I felt fully prepared and equipped to do what God called me to do."
– Jacob Vangen, Strategic Ministry graduate
