We believe that the power of the gospel can transform lives at any age. That’s why ministries designed specifically for children and their families are so vital in God’s kingdom.
If you have a heart that beats for children, a heart that’s broken for hurting families and a desire to serve, consider studying Children & Family Ministry at LBC. Through this program, you’ll learn what it takes to provide spiritual support, care, help and hope to families.
Through a robust curriculum that covers everything from Bible, discipleship, leadership and more, this program will help you examine your own spiritual gifts, passions and personality to best prepare you for ministry.

LBC | Capital’s unique 4+1 program provides students the opportunity to earn their undergraduate BA degree in Children & Family Ministry while also pursuing a Master of Arts either in Ministry (MAM) or Biblical Studies (MABS). A student can experience all the benefits of dynamic undergraduate student life all five years while maximize your time in college and minimize the cost of your education without sacrificing the quality of your experience. Graduate-level courses taken during undergraduate studies fulfill both undergraduate elective requirements and graduate program requirements. In the 4+1 program, students are dual-enrolled in LBC and Capital Seminary & Graduate School.
A student may opt for the 4+1 track at any point up through the beginning of their junior year. Before a student is formally admitted to the track, an evaluation will be conducted by their academic advisor. The evaluation considers the student’s previous academic performance, character and ability, and the recommendation of another LBC faculty member. Students that complete the 4+1 program can start their professional career sooner with the right credentials.
