About

The new flexible Master of Theology in Ministry Studies (Malawi) programme at University of Aberdeen has been designed to enable church leaders to reflect deeply upon the theology and practice of Christian ministry in today’s world.

Overview

Ministry Studies (Malawi) programme at University of Aberdeen  has been carefully created so that it is accessible to those who are already engaged in either full-time or part-time, ordained or lay Christian ministry. It is built around four one-week intensive modules held in September and January that will be delivered at Zomba Theological College over a two year period.

Zomba Theological College is a modern self-sustaining independent Christian University offering quality education based on Christian principles and values. It trains people based on these principles and values to become productive citizens for the transformation of the society spiritually, politically, morally and socio-economically while also providing advisory services through consultancy and research.

Career

Our core aim and vision in designing the MTh Ministry Studies is to give practicing church leaders the opportunity to be renewed in their ministries. 

The unique team of scholars in the Divinity department of the University of Aberdeen who contribute to this programme have worked at the ‘coalface’ of ministry. The Programme Co-ordinator, Rev Dr Ken Jeffrey, served as a parish minister for fourteen years. Therefore, this is a programme that is delivered by people who understand the particular challenges of ministry that are experienced by the church in the twenty first century.
