Being a servant leader was consistently taught throughout the Educational Leadership program. Principles such as this enrich the biblical education BJU offers and sets them apart as a school of greater standards.

Programs that

prepare you

well, for life

We help students develop core skills, gain real-world experience and acquire the credentials to be thoroughly prepared to make a lasting life-on-life impact through education in the hearts and minds of those they serve in both traditional and nontraditional careers.

How Can We Help You Serve?

standards of pedagogy,

Jesus was the greatest
teacher the world
