Nyack College’s Pastoral Ministry program equips men and women to successfully serve the church and not-for-profit organizations locally and globally. 


Nyack College’s Pastoral Ministries program prepares students to be ministers in the workplace in any professional context. 

We focus on the well-rounded development of our students in the areas of attitude, knowledge, and skill so that they graduate equipped with the following: an understanding of their unique calling and gifting; the ability to lead with a servant’s heart; a deep understanding of the Bible; healthy emotional, physical, and relational habits; spiritual maturity and passion; and the desire to apply biblical principles to every area of their life.

Our program is not just for students who are preparing for traditional Christian ministry in a church or parachurch organization. We also equip students who want to be more effective ministers in their community, family, secular work environment, and beyond.


Nyack’s BS in Pastoral Ministry can be a stepping stone to an M.Div. or a ministerial license with the Christian and Missionary Alliance (or a different denominational body). Our graduates are equipped to use their gifts serving in a church (e.g., as a minister, musical minister, youth minister, education director, pastor, elder, deacon, or trustee) and a wide range of secular outlets. This degree is a large step on the path of growth and service.
