Prepare to Lead
Would you like to become better equipped for ministry? As you navigate your options for theological training, it can be difficult to choose the right program. You aren’t looking for a quick and easy degree, but rather a comprehensive program that prioritizes dependence on Christ. Your call to ministry is a lifelong pursuit and you’re ready to invest the time and energy it takes to be thoroughly formed and trained to lead.
Effective ministry looks different today than it did a decade ago. Our 80-hour program gives you the opportunity to develop critical knowledge, skills and devotional practices to sustain your calling in an ever-changing culture. Whether you are a ministry leader, recent graduate or you are pursuing a second career, our program equips you for Christ-dependent leadership. You will have the unique opportunity to study with peers from various denominations who are unified under Christ and the Scriptures.
What to Expect
The MDiv is the normative degree for ordained ministry and religious leadership positions that call upon advanced qualifications. In our program, you will receive ministry preparation as you learn how to understand and communicate your faith and help others do the same. Together with your peers, you will develop transformative skills to preach, teach and disciple in community. Our MDiv is flexible, so you can keep up with your job and family while encountering Christ through seminary.
