This minor is intended for non-teacher education majors, especially those seeking BA in Bible with Selected Minor or BA in Ministry (double minor), who want to train to oversee a church’s sports and recreational ministry.



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!
