BACHELOR OF SCIENCE:

MISSIONS: BI-VOCATIONAL

The Bible and Missions: Bi-Vocational program prepares students to serve as missionaries while supporting themselves with a technical skill (agriculture, automotive maintenance, etc.). Hundreds of millions of people have no chance to hear the Gospel because they live in countries where full-time Christian workers are not allowed. However, Christians with certifiable skills can often be admitted to these countries.

OBJECTIVES

Students who complete this program will meet the objectives of the Division of Bible and Ministry, as well as the following objectives specific to this major.

Division Objectives: students will

1. Understand the need for, meaning, and practice of a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

2. Demonstrate a working knowledge of the Bible and essential Christian doctrine, the ability to accurately interpret Scripture, and an increasingly coherent Christian worldview that enables them to apply biblical principles to questions of ethics, compassion, and all other life situations.

3. Exhibit a lifestyle that is characterized by simplicity, integrity, responsibility, and order which reflects concern for the social implications of the gospel and lends credibility to a Christian testimony.

4. Demonstrate the basic knowledge and ability required to minister to others in their own cultural group and across cultural boundaries, utilizing appropriate technology and relevant forms of both written and verbal communication.

5. Demonstrate perseverance and commitment, and the ability to work productively both independently and in teams.

6. Develop the skills and understanding necessary for personal Bible-study, prayer, and devotional life which can sustain and empower one’s personal life and ministry to others.

7. Demonstrate the ability to find, process, and apply information that is relevant to one’s Christian life and ministry through the exercise of both critical and creative thinking.

Specific Program Objectives: students will

1. Fulfill the objectives of the Missions Major.

2. Demonstrate competence in a vocational/technical field of expertise that will equip them to be self-supporting in ministry or to enter into mission fields where traditional missionaries are unwelcome or unable to gain access.

3. Meet the objectives of the Division of General Studies

Barclay College has an arrangement with the nearby Pratt Community College/Area Vocational School that allows Barclay students to pursue vocational studies there. Students enrolled at Barclay may complete certificate or non-certificate programs as noted on the following pages. Classes within the vocational concentrations are completed at Pratt Community College; all others are completed on the Barclay campus. Because of the addition of the vocational concentration, this major may require additional time beyond the traditional four years.
