Use this guide to help with Church Ministries research.


Welcome to the Church Ministries Guide! 

You can use this guide when doing research in the field of Church Ministries. 

Don't forget you can also make an appointment with a librarian for some more research help!  Stop by the SRC, call (610) 917-2001, or send us an e-mail at to set up an appointment for help with research. 

The Church Ministries Department uses The MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers, 8th edition, for most undergraduate classes.  More information on MLA Style can be found here. 

Undergraduates in the Senior Capstone Research Project (THE 483) and Graduate students should use A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations, by Kate L. Turabian, 8th edition.  More information on Turabian Style can be found here.
