Director of Christian Education Minor

Christ College

The Director of Christian Education (DCE) minor must be paired with the Theological Studies: Christian Education Leadership major and focuses on preparing you as an educational leader for life-span ministry in a congregational setting within the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS). Undergraduates who wish to become DCEs in the LCMS must apply to the Christ College Church Work program prior to declaring the DCE minor.

Through four years of coursework and one year of internship, you will be prepared to serve effectively in a congregational setting in the following roles:

  • Ministry Leader: Heart for full-time service in the church
  • Christian Educator: Strong theological base to teach the Bible
  • Care Minister: Dynamic character, willing to listen to and care for the needs of others
  • Life Span Minister: Compassion for people of all ages and backgrounds
