The Master of Practical Theology at Eastern University, available fully online or in a hybrid online format, equips church leaders to think creatively and constructively about how the church shapes its life to respond to what God is doing in our world.


Rooted in Scripture and in a commitment to the spiritual formation of participants, students in this Master of Practical Theology program at Eastern University will learn how to do theology holistically as they explore, discuss, and engage six local church practices in depth. 

Participants will interact with and learn from experienced pastors in the context of the local church and experience the joy of doing theology as part of a team, while applying their learning immediately to their local ministry contexts.
