Christian Colleges, Universities, and Seminaries in the MinistryWatch Database

Below is a list of the Christian colleges, universities, and seminaries in the MinistryWatch database.

Please note that this is a new category for us, and this list remains a work-in-progress.  Check back regularly for additions and changes.

This list should not be interpreted as a list of recommended ministries.  They are ranked by total revenue, and not by effectiveness, financial efficiency, or any other measure.  That said, the Financial Efficiency rating and the Transparency Grade of the ministries are listed.

To learn more about these institutions, click on the ministry’s name and read the complete MinistryWatch profile on this organization.
