A degree in Christian Formation and Ministry at Wheaton College Illinois prepares you to minister in whatever context you are called through course work in ministry, teaching, counseling, and discipleship


The educational ministry of the church is to help people as they are being formed into the likeness of Christ. It is for this purpose that the Christian Education and Ministry Department exists. Our mission is to facilitate the development of academically grounded, spiritually maturing, and practically skilled leaders who minister the gospel and build up God’s people in a constantly changing world.
