Bachelor of Science in Christian Service and Formation

Are you interested in understanding how your surroundings shape your worldview and how you can use that lens to engage the world in meaningful ways for Christ? In the Bachelor of Science in Christian Service and Formation program, you will have an opportunity to develop pastoral skills and broaden your cultural awareness while nurturing your identity in Christ. You’ll focus on three key pillars — reading scripture, understanding your cultural competency around scripture, and cultivating your spiritual formation. At ACU, we believe the best kind of spiritual formation comes from those who are tending to their own spiritual life.


ACT or SAT are not required.
