Master of Arts in Local Church Ministry
There are those interested in or involved in vocational ministry who want to pursue postgraduate study, but pursuing a 90-hour M.Div. is impractical or undesirable. The 48-hour Master of Arts in Local Church Ministry is a wonderful alternative! It includes theology and hermeneutics, spiritual formation and prayer, and a variety of practical ministry courses. The M.A. in Local Church Ministry also offers a concentration in Women’s Leadership.
The following types of students are encouraged to consider this program:
- Those already having had several years of vocational ministry experience who desire further theological study in order to be better prepared for the pastoral role.
- Students desiring additional theological study for their particular field of ministry.
This is a terminal degree program for those who do not plan to pursue a Doctor of Ministry degree in the future.
