Ministry, Leadership and Culture from Fresno Pacific University is an innovative and holistic educational experience designed primarily for pastors currently engaged in ministry. This three-year program, conducted primarily in an online classroom, includes instruction from strategic, global ministry leaders and is grounded in engagement with our changing culture.  


Ministry, Leadership and Culture from Fresno Pacific University requires students to serve in their local church for 10 hours per week, attend a weekly 90-minute synchronous discussion via video conference, attend four one-week retreats in North America, and create their own cross-cultural experience before graduation. Each student will be assigned a coach or spiritual director to help him or her develop into a highly equipped ministry leader.


With a Master of Arts in Ministry, Leadership and Culture, you will be able to integrate theory and practice. As the Christian church looks to creatively navigate current culture, this degree will help graduates prepare to lead the church into the future with a distinct ability to understand sub-cultures, theology and leadership practice. Graduates will also learn to cultivate the important practice of caring for their own souls throughout the course of their future ministry.
