Preparation for Ministry
The M.Div. prepares students for a host of ministerial vocations [Link 4] including: Traditional congregational ministries, emerging ministries, global missions, social justice ministries, and teaching.
Contextual education is part of the MDiv that connects the classroom and real-world ministry, integrating theology in contemporary cultural contexts.
The MDiv produces learning outcomes in terms of increased proficiency in: understanding of contemporary culture and history, and development of leadership, care of souls, and character.
The missions track is designed for those who plan to evangelize domestically or abroad. It also equips students with advanced academic skills in preparation for doctoral work.
The MDiv Curriculum contains 84 hours of classes in:
- Context, 15 hours
- The Story of the Church, 24-27 hours:
- Interpretation, 21-24 hours
- The Church’s Mission, 12 hours
