Theology and Ministry


The School of Theology and Ministry will help you discover and carry out God's calling for your life. You will be taught and mentored by faculty who are committed Christ-followers, live under the authority of God's Word, have respect for the Church and love students. Your classroom experience will be enriched by being regularly involved in ministry at prisons, nursing homes, homeless shelters, YMCA activities, public school outreach, local church ministry and church plants.

Our students represent over 40 Christian denominations so you will be welcomed in a diverse, Christ-centered community. Your classes will be biblically and theologically solid, but also practical. With dozens of academic programs offered by the School of Theology and Ministry, you can tailor your IWU education to fit your chosen vocation. Most of the undergraduate programs can be completed in three years, saving you both time and money.

Charlie Alcock Headshot

Charlie Alcock

Assistant Professor | MA

Charlie Alcock is invested in the lives of students and how their lives impact those around them, above them, and below them. He teaches classes that walk students through the ministry program each year, focusing on calling, equipping and sustaining students to be future leaders and pastors. Charlie received his Bachelor's Degree from Indiana Wesleyan University and his Masters of Arts from Azusa Pacific University, before coming back to his Alma Mater to connect with students as a professor and mentor. Charlie is the Executive Director of Youth Ministry Events, which seeks to give students the opportunity to plan conferences for teenagers, such as Never To Young and Fusion, and sends students all over the country to help with summer camps during the Summer. Charlie recently released a book, Full Circle, that discusses youth ministry that both starts and ends with the foundation of Jesus.
