Master of Ministry

What will I study?

In support of the Division of Professional Ministry Studies commitment to develop students' practical ministry skill and their facility in interpreting Scripture, the Master of Ministry degree exists to hone a deployed minister's skills in ministry practice, biblical interpretation, and pulpit proclamation through lectures, directed reading, and ministry-related papers and projects which promote his ministry effectiveness and his own Christlikeness.

The degree is designed for those with a minimum of two years of pastoral experience and who, due to present pastoral ministry, are unable to enroll in a residence program. This degree is designed to further develop a man's philosophy of ministry and ministry skills both in the local church and on the mission field.

Professional ministry courses (600- and 700-levels) are offered in residence in a one-week modular format three times during the academic year and summer session. A new cycle of professional ministry courses are introduced every four years. Courses are also available online via distance learning.
