The Secondary Bible Education minor is for non-teacher education majors who want to prepare to teach secondary Bible classes in a Christian school. This minor does not provide a means of a state teaching license, but may be sufficient to receive a Bible specialist certificate from one or more Christian school accreditation agencies.



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!
