Designed to produce a well-rounded pastor and preacher, the Master of Divinity program at The Master's Seminary prepares you to handle God’s Word precisely and shepherd God’s people effectively.


When it comes to the care of souls, the question is not “How quickly and easily can I prepare?” but “How much training do I need to be fully equipped?” That is why our Master of Divinity curriculum at The Master's Seminary requires twice the units of other programs and emphasizes the original languages.

And because pastors need to care for souls in a place of souls, our full Master of Divinity is a residential program, located on the campus of Grace Community Church.
