Overview

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.

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.
