Have you considered serving in a ministerial capacity or maybe leading a Christian non-profit? Not sure what role God has for you, but maybe you want to help others learn how to study God's Word, to apply it, and to defend it? Consider a minor in biblical studies.
Studying the Bible is one of the most important ways to rightly understanding ourselves and our world. Beyond sermons and seminars from others on Christian living, personal biblical study is enriching.
Studying the Bible in conjunction with any other subject areas is very rewarding. When you study history and the Bible, you'll better see history from the context of God's sovereignty. When you study science and the Bible, you'll suddenly have a stronger appreciation for our identity, our design, and God's intent for Creation. . . . We are training ourselves to better understand God's view of truly living, of marriage and family, of the role of government, of self-discipline, and how we ought to live, love, and serve others.
