About the Program

MAGS is a 48-hour, innovative, real-world curriculum to equip Christian leaders to serve in global contexts. It will provide you resources for any ministry that requires living, working, and communicating in the intercultural contexts typical of today’s global society.

MAGS will help you to become:

  • theologically formed
  • missionally aware
  • interculturally competent

You will become a leader prepared for effective and sustainable service in a variety of cultural settings.

Drawing upon theology, sociology, anthropology, history, and communication theory, MAGS will challenge you to become a learner who analyzes contemporary global concerns, formulates Christian perspectives, and explores solutions to intercultural challenges. You will engage the practices of global service through a mix of graduate courses, contextual learning opportunities, and mentoring in the competencies necessary for Christian leadership and service in intercultural contexts.

If you have advanced theological study or with extensive undergraduate studies in Bible, religion, and ministry you may receive up to 12 credits of advanced placement.
