The Master of Arts in Ministry Practice is for those who want to prepare for associate ministry roles in churches or parachurch organizations. Our coursework provides students with practical ministry training shaped by a firm grounding in biblical and theological reflection.

The M.A. in Ministry Practice is designed to:

  • Provide a biblical-theological framework for ministry practice
  • Familiarize students with emerging theoretical and research methodologies in the field of ministry studies
  • Promote a culturally sensitive understanding and practice of ministry
  • Promote awareness of ethical and theological issues relevant to ministry praxis

To give students the flexibility they need, we offer the ministry practice degree through a number of program delivery options.
