Master of Christian Ministry

Purpose

 

The Master of Christian Ministry Degree program is designed to provide students with a Biblical and Theological foundation for godly living and fruitful Christian ministry. The program is offered to assist students in gaining additional theological training while they are serving in their local church. To allow for maximum application of the courses, it is therefore required that applicants be active in ministry in their local church.

 

Why The M.C.M Program?

 

The Master of Christian Ministry degree prepares students for practical areas of ministry, such as local church ministry, evangelism, church planting, Christian education, and Christian leadership. It equips students with skills in leadership, communication, and counseling. As well, the program gives assessment tools to relate to particular ministry contexts.
