B. H. Carroll Theological Institute: Our Curriculum Part Four – Worship and Mission

Our Curriculum

The curriculum design for the Institute is built around the organizing principle of four Learning Clusters. These clusters are natural convergences of the functional roles in ministry. Each cluster develops a set of skills and synthesizes learning for ministers to use in planning and exercising the responsibilities related to the calling and mission of the church. The four clusters collectively form a continuum of practical learning built upon the academic subjects, which are arranged as follows:

Worship and Mission (WM)

Worship – WMWOR
Evangelism – WMEVA
Missions – WMMIS
Church Music – WMCMU
