Church Secretarial

Program Purpose

Most churches today need a secretary, and many times a pastor’s wife will find herself filling that role.

The student receives a foundation in Bible, essential general education courses, church business courses that develop their secretarial skills, and church education courses that help them to understand ministry in a local church.
