Department Highlights

Department of Bible, Theology, and Ministry

The Department of Bible, Theology, & Ministry is committed to guiding you into a deeper understanding of the Christian faith, God's Word, and of what it means to be a part of Christ’s kingdom in these times.

We believe the study of theology is not just for future ministers, but for all who desire to ask, and to attempt to answer, the great questions of human life and Christian faith. As a Christian university, Malone provides the ideal environment to take up these important questions.

Alumni Spotlight

“Malone equipped me for ministry in so many ways and I am so grateful for the time I spent there. My ministry classes helped prepare me for the practical aspects of ministry and I was equipped for full-time ministry before I graduated because of opportunities I had to serve on campus and the relationships I built with faculty, staff, and other students. These relationships equipped me for this work because they poured into me spiritually and challenged me to think deeper about my faith and walk with God. You don’t get that everywhere and I am beyond blessed to have met so many great people at Malone.”
