The Practical Theology Concentration is designed for those who are employed as pastors in their churches. It is expected that most of these will be ministers who have ordination credentials. Consequently, the concentration is planned to enhance those ministry skills and increase their effectiveness in their careers. A second category of persons who may be interested in this concentration are those who have limited experience in ministry but feel called to dedicate their lives to the work of ministry and may be employed full-time or part-time by a church in a ministry role. The concentration is planned to continue the development of their ministry skills in practical theology.
