The Russell School of Ministry is an institution focused and specialized on training leaders for ministry. It’s less “Christian liberal arts college” and more “trade school for ministers.” If that’s not what you’re looking for, we’d be happy to recommend schools that might be a better fit.
But if you think that God is calling you to lead and work in a local church and you want to be prepared and equipped for that work, Russell School of Ministry might be for you.
With a mix of in-person and online classes with for-credit ministry experience, you can finish your degree only attending one night per week.
Every institution says their degree is "affordable." Our goal is for degree-seeking students to finish with no debt.
A lot of what you learn through RSM won't be in a classroom. Our cutting-edge Field Education will help you start learning ministry skills at a local church in a guided, mentored, collaborative way.
