Master of Arts

Bible and book on table


The Master of Arts (MA) in Ministry is a 30-hour program designed for church members, pastoral staff, and others in the ministry who desire to enhance their knowledge of the Bible and ministry skills. Consisting of 10, 3-credit courses, the MA in Ministry is a great standalone program for someone looking to further their knowledge of the Bible. It may also be fully applied to the Master of Divinity (MDiv) degree. To see a comparison between the two programs, click on the file below to download the infographic. Even if you were thinking about doing an MDiv, we would encourage you to take the first 10 courses at this highly-reduced tuition rate of $99 per credit hour.


Upon completion of the requirements, the graduate will be able to:

  • Defend a biblical worldview using the basic tenets of Christian theology
  • Preach/teach hermeneutically sound messages and Bible lessons
  • Utilize modern technology to enhance ministry effectiveness
  • Communicate the message of the Gospel to our culture and cross culturally
