BECOME THE COMMUNICATOR THE WORLD IS SEEKING
We use communication every day, and in more ways, than we realize. Whether it’s the media we watch and listen to or the ways we engage in our interpersonal relationships, we are always participating in communication. It’s everywhere. That’s why in the humanities division we put such an emphasis on cultivating students who understand how to communicate while incorporating a Christian worldview.

The applied ministry major is designed for those planning on engaging in tent-making ministries such as church planting or bi-vocational ministry, or for those who are planning to enter para-church ministries like Christian camping, working in media, running a homeless shelter or fighting human trafficking. The program equips students with a strong foundation in theology, ministry skills, and biblical studies. Beyond that, students are encouraged to choose electives which will address their specific calling and meet their personal ministry-related goals.
The Associate of Arts program allows students to enhance their learning by enrolling in a curriculum that will provide the foundation related to a specific discipline. This gives the student freedom to pursue whatever they desire from a liberal arts perspective.
The Communication majors at Central Christian College of Kansas are dedicated to training, equipping, and sending out students who can impact the world.

Attention is given to providing students with an understanding of the development of the child/adolescent, as well as biblical, theological and theoretical foundation needed to develop and maintain an effective ministry to students. The major offers a balance between coursework and hands-on training.
The objective of the Worship Arts major is to prepare students to be dynamic leaders of worship as a vocational ministry. Students gain a solid foundation in biblical theology as well as experience with all aspects of worship –technology, planning, and leadership.
