Master of Ministry Program Intro.

Master of Ministry Program

The Master of Ministry degree offers a variety of options to accommodate a diverse group of ministerial and leadership professionals. That group includes pastors, church leaders, academic scholars and others who are seeking continuing ministerial or leadership education.

The purpose of the Master of Ministry degree is to provide the student with a better understanding of spiritual, skill and strategic formation. The degree also addresses such areas as graduate level research, critical thinking and the writing processes. It incorporates scholarship with practicum directed toward the development of real life solutions to 21st century ministry challenges.

The degree is offered on a Modular Basis, or through our once a week Campus Evening Program which is available at the Bethany campus, as well as in the Tulsa metro area. The Modular Program consists of week long classes (4 days)  which the student attends, either at the Bethany Campus or at Emmanuel College in Franklin Springs, Georgia. Pre-class assignments consisting of reading and other written responses are sent out prior to the actual class. Next is the class sessions, followed by a post class assignment usually due 5-6 weeks later. For more information on the once a week Campus Evening Program, click here.

The Master of Ministry Degree requires thirty-six credit hours, twenty-one hours of core curriculum and fifteen hours in the area of emphasis (called the concentration). The student then enters into a regimen of specified classes unique to the concentration sought under the degree.  Finally, the student produces the capstone work of the program, the MAP [Ministry Application Project] which follows a Research Methods class.

Concentrations are offered in the following areas:

  • Intercultural Studies
  • Leadership Studies
  • Life Coaching
  • Pastoral Ministries
  • Post-Graduate Courses
