From: Volume 13, Issue 2: Fall 2016, Educational Ministry and Missions Pages 283-292


The “debt as investment” approach to education has increased the school loan rates for undergraduate students. This article looks at the true cost of school debt and calls for Christian institutions of higher education to take an active role in providing financial training for ministry students. A financial management curriculum outline of three 90-minute sessions is provided to facilitate financial training for ministry students to make debt choices for an education that will both enable graduation and secure sufficient income within his or her vocation.

Key words: Ministry students, Vocational Ministry, Finances, Financial Training
