Why Study Ministry?

Ministry will help you live your faith by serving others. Ministry proceeds from the heart of the Church. It flows from Jesus, is energized by the Holy Spirit, and points to the Father in Heaven. Study ministry, and you can prepare yourself for a life in service of God.

USF’s Ministry degree introduces students to various ministries, basic resources in ministry, and the nature and purpose of ministry.

But, is it right for me?

We asked our professors and they said ministers:

  • Possess interpersonal skills to connect with diverse groups of people
  • Are interested in cultural and societal trends
  • Have a good work ethic
