The General Ministry Minor is a flexible minor designed to add an area of expertise to a thorough education in the Bible. With the approval of the Dean of the School of Bible and Theology in consultation with the Provost, a student may complete an eighteen-hour minor in a field other than those specifically listed if the coursework is available at Piedmont International University or by transfer.



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!
