Master in Ministry
The Master in Ministry (MIM) is designed to prepare students – intellectually, spiritually, and functionally – for vocational or lay ministry in a variety of contexts. The program is specifically designed for those who already possess an undergraduate degree yet have not taken foundational courses in Bible, Theology, or Ministry. The program is available online or on-campus.
This 30-credit degree program is designed to be completed part or full-time. In addition to the required courses (21 credits) within the program, a number of electives are offered so students may choose courses which meet their particular interests.
The program has been structured with the adult learner and working professional in mind in that the program may be completed entirely online. Students that desire to take on-campus courses may do so within their elective courses, creating a blended (online and on-campus) learning experience.
The Master in Ministry is structured around a group of students working together to encourage and learn from one another–an environment that empowers Christian leadership formation.
The Master in Ministry program seeks to equip Christian leaders intellectually, spiritually, and functionally, to successfully:
- Serve as leaders in a variety of Christian leadership contexts including both local church and para-church ministries.
- Engage in biblical and theological reflection, especially as it relates to one’s ministry context.
- Provide individuals wishing to transition into ministry from a lay background by providing the academic foundation needed to obtain ministerial credentials.
- Serve as academic foundation for those wishing to pursue further graduate theological training.
