MASTER OF ARTS
Christian Ministry

The MACM is designed for students who want a solid biblical and theological foundation with the flexibility of being well-prepared for various ministry roles, but do not plan to pursue more senior level church and ministry positions. This degree appeals to student who desire to draw closer to God through formal study at the graduate level, yet remain unsure of God’s specific calling on their life. For many students, the MACM offers the best of both worlds…blending academic and practical courses into a degree that can be completed in 2 years.
