Associate of Science in Ministry

Program Details

The online AS in Ministry offered by Welch College is intended to prepare lay-persons for involvement in their local church, or to supplement the knowledge of part-time pastors. The skills that students acquire in this program are meant to strengthen Christian ministries, but not stand-alone as preparation for full-time ministerial positions.  An online orientation course is required before taking other classes in this degree, which comprises a general education core and biblical studies.  Topics covered include:

  • Bible doctrines
  • Homiletics
  • Marriage and the family
  • Gospel and Acts


  • Intended for adult students, age 23 or older
