Media Ministry

The Media Ministry Major equips students to utilize communication principles, media technology, and best practices in ministry, to lead a successful media ministry in a church.

Students will benefit from Johnson’s accreditation, affordable tuition, and an experienced and engaged faculty passionate about each student’s success. Both the Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts degree coursework integrate a Bible & Theology Core and Arts & Sciences Core. Bachelor of Arts degrees usually include 12 or more credits of foreign language study, while Bachelor of Science degrees include additional Natural Science (like Biology and Science Concepts) and Social and Behavioral Science courses (like Psychology and Economics). Students also apply their theoretical knowledge in real-world settings through professional internships. 

When students complete this program, they will be able to do the following:

  • Enhance biblical teaching and ministry by utilizing media arts skills, theory, and equipment.
  • Utilize appropriate equipment, theories, and ideas to create high quality live stage productions and live streaming events.
  • Evaluate and utilize theories in staging, set design, and construction in the production of live events.
