Now Online

This program allows maximum flexibility in scheduling along with the practical application to current ministry situations. To allow maximum application of the courses, applicants must be active in ministry and must have completed three years ministry experience. Three M.Min. one-week modules are offered each year.

Learning Outcomes: Graduates of this program will be able to

  • demonstrate an advanced knowledge of the Word of God through expositional study,
  • offer a credible defense of sound doctrine,
  • integrate a greater understanding of Scripture into various ministry contexts,
  • evaluate current issues affecting ministry in light of biblical teaching, and
  • demonstrate through research and writing projects the ability to apply the Word of God practically in their area of ministry.

The class format of this program is one-week modules and distance learning, which offer the convenience of limited time away from ministry with an immediate, hands-on application to the home ministry.

The Master of Ministry curriculum has three phases.

  1. Bible content courses, one in Old Testament and one in New Testament, combined with TH 640 Doctrine and History of Preservation of the Text, provide the student with foundational concepts to strengthen his love for God’s Word.
  2. Master of Ministry courses, both practical and modular, provide the student with refreshing and revitalizing concepts that can be used effectively in current ministry.
  3. Additional seminary electives may be chosen to supplement M.Min. modules, allowing the student to gain advanced training in Bible content, theology, or pastoral training.

The flexibility this degree offers in its course requirements permits a student to tailor the requirements according to the needs of his ministry.
