Bachelor of Arts in Church Planting & Revitalization

The goal of the Church Planting & Revitalization (CPR) major is to prepare students to make disciples resulting in the development of churches. Almost 90% of church jobs today are either in a church needing revitalization or in a church plant. With the United States being the third largest mission field in the world, the CPR major also prepares students for international and domestic missions. With two practicums in the program and field assignments in every course, students who complete the CPR major will have at least four semesters of practical experience in church planting and/or church revitalization.
