Bakke Graduate University

The MAGUL degree is designed especially for urban ministry leaders who desire greater expertise and skill in leading transformation in cities. Students come from church, education, social work, government and small business backgrounds but are united in a desire to understand more about the complex social, economic, physical, political, and environmental systems that make up global cities.

Master's Programmes



Bakke Graduate University (BGU), formerly Northwest Graduate School of Ministry (NWGS), was founded in 1990 by Overlake Christian Church in Seattle, Washington. The need for the School grew out of the annual pastors’ conferences held at Overlake Christian Church in the 1980s and 1990s. Its primary emphasis during this first decade was serving Northwest US pastors.
