About

The primary purpose of the Ministry Studies program of Lee University is to provide training for ministers in light of a growing consensus that ministers in the twenty-first century need more training to be effective in vocational ministry.

Overview

Purpose and Philosophy

The Ministry Studies program of Lee University utilizes a modular format that will allow working adults to complete the program with little interruption in their vocational duties. The scope of the program will allow both clergy and lay members to complete a graduate degree in ministerial studies which will positively affect their practice of ministry. 

The degree prepares students in the foundational theory and praxis of ministry as well as in the social and psychological contexts of the people to whom they will minister. Interdisciplinary in nature, this program presents the foundations and skills of ministry for pastoral staff ministry (e.g. family pastors, youth pastors, lead pastors, worship pastors) and parachurch staff (e.g. non-profit organizations, discipleship associations, social service providers).
