Why Bethel’s Master of Divinity?

The Master of Divinity program at Bethel Seminary San Diego prepares leaders with relevant teaching for effective ministry in their churches and organizations.

Here are a few highlights of the program:

  • Diverse context. Prepare for ministry in a locale noted for its ethnic and cultural diversity, within an environment that celebrates individual backgrounds and experiences.
  • Practitioner faculty. Learn from faculty who are respected, published scholars and actively engaged in ministry throughout the world.
  • Relationship building. Build strong relationships with students, teachers, and staff.
  • Evangelical training. Be equipped for today’s evangelism through our emphasis on the indigenization of methods for outreach and the gospel message.
  • Cross-cultural ministry preparation. Learn to value language and cultural learning for cross-cultural ministries, and understand church-planting techniques and church leadership dynamics in ways that respect the ethos of the people you serve.
  • Adaptable teaching. Come to understand the many historical traditions of applied and situative faith and incarnate the gospel of Christ in any environment to which God may call you.
