Master of Divinity

Overview

The Master of Divinity degree is the best option for those who are called to full time ministry. You will gain a solid understanding of the Bible, your faith tradition and your ministry calling. As a leader in the church, you will be equipped to teach the scriptures and apply them in your local context as you continue to grow in your ability to serve God.


The centerpiece to your MDiv program is a focus on Christian leadership development. Along with your study of the scriptures, you will be equipped with the essential skills and spiritual formation necessary for leading thriving ministries. The church needs leaders who are called by God to serve. If this is your calling, the MDiv will help you live it out.


*The Master of Divinity contains 90 credit hours and can be done in three years of full time study, or over a longer period of part-time study.
