Churches and para-church ministries around the world need solid financial management, proper legal compliance, and efficient staffing. This minor is designed to train individuals to help meet these needs. Many ideas can be gleaned from the business world, but biblical discernment is necessary to determine which concepts should be incorporated within a particular ministry. Additionally, rules and regulations for nonprofit organizations differ greatly from those of the for-profit sector.



Piedmont International University has transformed my life and ministry for the Lord.  I chose this school for its consistent doctrinal teaching at all academic levels and for its dispensational approach to Scripture.  The faculty and staff go the extra mile to help students receive the best education possible.  If you want the best academic training for ministry, choose Piedmont!
