Anyone with the desire to help others can serve God’s people, but what if you want to take your service to a new level? Creighton University’s Master of Arts in Ministry program can prepare you to serve in a number of professional capacities within the Catholic church and other Christian denominations, or in a faith-based role outside of the church, in as little as three years.


At this Ministry program offered by Creighton University ,you’ll learn about serving in a Christian role from leaders in the field. Faculty members in the Master of Arts in Ministry program are widely published and are known nationally and internationally. Courses are geared toward theology and your professional and personal development.

When did you last take time to reflect on who you are as a person and how God is calling you to serve? One of the highlights of this program is an eight-day spiritual retreat that gives you the time to take a step back from your busy, everyday life and work on your personal formation. During this time, you’ll explore your life, your sense of who God is, your identity in Christ and how God is inviting you to serve.
