M. A. Christian Ministry

A fully online master’s degree in Christian Ministry can provide theological education, character formation, and practical experience in a flexible, affordable format that does not require relocation. This degree is 36-hours, fully online, and is able to be completed in 15-18 months. It includes course work in biblical and theological studies, ministry, and leadership and is designed to provide graduate level preparation for those already in ministry—or those seeking to transition to ministry—in a variety of contexts. 

By drawing course work from the focus areas of Bible and theology, ministry and leadership, and global ministries, graduates will be prepared to serve in diverse ministry settings. Pending SACSCOC approval, the Master’s in Christian Ministry will begin in Fall 2023.  Advanced standing for up to 12 undergraduate credit hours may be given to qualified students toward their masters degree.
