School of Ministry

Course of Study Options


Our first recommendation for those who are called to ministry is for the candidate to pursue a bachelors degree through Southern Nazarene University (SNU). Yet, we understand that for many this is not possible. If it is not possible for a candidate to pursue such a degree from SNU, we recommend he or she enter the degree program (or non-degree program) online through Nazarene Bible College (NBC) or complete his or her course work online through Northwest Nazarene University (NNU). In addition, the North Arkansas District School of Ministry will offer several courses per year towards the completion of the course of study.  


Southern Nazarene University - School of Theology & Ministry

Nazarene Bible College - Degree Program

Nazarene Bible College - Ministry Preparation Program (Non-degree)

Northwest Nazarene University - Modular Course of Study 



Arkansas School of Ministry


Those living within an hour of the class's physical location are required to attend the class in person (some exceptions can be made), but those outside that range may take the course using Zoom.
