Degrees and Requirements

The Center for Urban Biblical Ministry was born out of a need to provide formal education and credential for church ministers and lay leaders in 1988. Geneva College in Beaver Falls shared our vision for the urban population of Pittsburgh and collaborated with CUBM to develop an associate degree program.

A.A in Christian Ministry
Many believers enter into ministry without formal training and little biblical studies. The associate degree in Christian ministry equips students with basic biblical and academic skills to heighten their ability to serve or work in local churches or organizations.

This program focuses on the relationship of human needs and values to the social conditions. Students develop effective communication skills as well as knowledge to understand and contribute effectively to the development and maintenance of healthy communities, groups and individuals.

We are proud of the fact that many CUBM graduates continue their education, taking the next step and earn a bachelor’s degree and beyond. Many go on to Geneva’s Adult Degree Completion Program (ADCP). Each of our associate degrees will prepare students for any of the four majors currently offered in ADCP or any other four-year college program.
