Clergy members typically conduct religious worship and perform other spiritual functions that are associated with the beliefs and practices of a particular religious faith or denomination, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. These professionals also provide spiritual and moral guidance to members of the community.
High school students who wish to launch careers in this field may benefit from attending a school that has a mission of encouraging Christian values. For example, Great Lakes Christian College (GLCC) in Michigan aims to impart personal, spiritual and intellectual growth to all students, according to the school. The university's 11 degree tracks require learners to take Bible Theology classes, through which they will obtain a degree in Bible Theology degree in addition to a degree in their field of study.
This method of learning is designed to give students a thorough understanding of Scripture and a base for which to continue their education.
GLCC offers majors in advanced Bible studies, Bible theology, Christian ministries, Christian education, youth ministry and music, among others.
According to the school's website, the main mission of GLCC is "to prepare students to be servant-leaders in the church and world."
