Graduates of the Master of Arts in Ministry should be able to:
The Master of Arts in Ministry prepares students for Christian leadership other than pulpit/preaching ministries. It specifically equips students for a variety of professional church and para-church ministries or as church lay leaders. It is expressly not designed to prepare students academically for doctoral studies or for ordination in those churches that require the Master of Divinity degree.
Students will engage in the systematic study of the Scriptures and theology while being exposed to current theological issues and positions with the goal of equipping the student to think biblically, independently and constructively in vital areas of ministry.
In addition, the Master of Arts in Ministry program includes the benefit of personal mentoring with a special emphasis on character development and spiritual growth.
