Master of Divinity in Christian Leadership

The Master of Divinity in Christian Leadership is a 74 semester hour program.  The M.Div. in Christian Leadership does not require coursework in New Testament Greek or Biblical Hebrew.  The program provides the essentials for students desiring to enhance their practical ministry skills. The program provides preparation for the Doctor of Ministry in Pastoral Leadership program or the Doctor of Ministry in Biblical Counseling program or the Doctor of Ministry in Biblical Exposition program. The M.Div. in Christian Leadership provides training in Biblical Studies, Theology, Pastoral Ministry and Theological Research.

No biblical language work is required for the M.Div. (Christian Leadership) degree program.  Emphasis is placed upon the English text of the KJV Bible.  Students will receive 39 semester hours of expositional training in the text of the English KJV Bible from both the Old and New Testaments.  Special emphasis is placed upon key books and groups of books that expound the history of Israel and the doctrine of the Church. Students will find that they have a grasp of the essentials of the Bible upon completing this program.

The Master of Divinity in Christian Leadership does not require a Master’s Thesis.  Instead, the student will be challenged to improve critical thinking and writing skills through two Theological Research courses and through assignments required throughout the curriculum.  ATS believes that all pastors and church leaders should be able to clearly delineate and present sound Bible lessons and sermons from the English text, and the program will help students achieve this goal in a practical manner.

The M.Div. (Christian Leadership) program is an advance-at-your-own-pace program.  Most students will complete the program in approximately three years
