The Christian Ministry Program is a major tent-pole of the Center for Vocation, Faith and Service at Hastings College, and has been successfully preparing students for Christian Ministry since 2003. The program has fueled a sharp increase in the number of seminary and graduate school-bound students (over half of which receive full-tuition scholarships for their graduate studies). Christian Ministry scholars are leaders on the Hastings College campus. In leading service organizations, in local churches, in campus religious life, in sports and in their classroom study, these students have won many state, regional and national awards for their work, and continue to exhibit the very best characteristics of what it means to be a Bronco.
