Become a Modern-Day Disciple
Ministry can be overwhelming. While there is no greater joy than joining God at His work in the world, the endless demands and responsibilities on ministry leaders can lead to burnout. Do you need space to discern your call as you pursue full- or part-time ministry? Do you want to complete your theological education in a supportive community?
The Calling was created in order to bring together a group of modern-day disciples pursuing God’s call. Incorporating hybrid, in-person experiences with exceptional educational technology lets you remain in your current career or ministry context with minimal disruption, all while being equipped to pursue your call.
At the end of this experience, our students graduate with a 37-hour Master of Arts in Applied Bible and Theology.
The Calling is uniquely designed to give you the opportunity to build on the foundations of your faith and better understand and fulfill your distinctive calling. With an emphasis on study and spiritual formation, you will complete your degree program within a supportive, diverse community. When you join The Calling, you will experience the following:
- An affordable, subscription model that allows you to finish your degree in 24 months for only $400/month
