We believe that each person is designed to fulfill the simplicity of the Gospel. It does not matter if you are called to be a dentist, to be a coach, or to be a pastor of 5,000 people, we are all called to love and to lead. Desperation College provides three programs that enable students to learn more about ministry in and through the local church as we strive to be the hands and feet of Christ.

Degree Programs

Students can earn a Bachelor’s or Associate’s degree through a partner University, while at the same time obtaining the practical hands-on ministry and leadership training here at Desperation Church. All degree options are full-time programs and designed for students who wish to pursue vocational ministry. These programs offer Desperation College leadership and ministry courses, in addition to University Bible courses. Students in this program will have the opportunity to get hands-on training and experience in a specific area of ministry. The Degree-seeking programs also provide the option to apply for a third-year internship. The goal of the full-time program is to equip leaders to live out their purpose through the local church. In addition to any earned degrees, students will also receive an Advanced Certificate of Ministry from Desperation College.
