Master of Ministry (M.Min.)


Program Overview

The Master of Ministry in Pastoral Studies is a 30 semester hour program. The program focuses upon the teaching of important doctrines through the study of key Bible books from both the Old and New Testaments. The program is a great option for those who are seeking to minister in the local church and desire to enhance their knowledge of the Bible.

The Master of Ministry in Pastoral Studies does not require language work or a master’s thesis. All coursework is lecture-based, with a variety of professors presenting practical exposition courses for the Christian teacher. Students will be challenged to think more deeply about the Word of God than ever before. Most courses will test the student’s grasp of the course material through traditional final exams. Upon completion of the course, students should have a large collection of practical expository notes that they can easily transform into lessons for the church classroom.

The Master of Ministry (Pastoral Studies) program requires completion of ten advance-at-your-own-pace courses. Students are required to maintain a 2.50 GPA.
