We are preparing women for ministry leadership. If you feel a call to ministry, leadership and discipleship, this is one program you’ll want to consider. Lancaster Bible College’s Women in Christian Ministry Leadership major places a strong emphasis on equipping women with the tools they need to be skilled leaders who disciple and teach effectively – wherever God calls them.
Today, graduates of this program work in a variety of contexts: in the Middle East among sex trafficking victims, admissions counselors at colleges and universities, and as missionaries and ministry leaders in churches and parachurch ministries.
As a student, you’ll be provided with multiple opportunities to discover your unique design by exploring personality, giftedness, passions and talents. Leadership styles will be discussed that will prepare you to serve with men and women in meaningful and effective workplace partnerships.

LBC | Capital’s unique 4+1 program provides students the opportunity to earn their undergraduate BA degree in Women in Ministry Leadership 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.
