Master of Divinity

Do you see yourself leading from the altar, the pulpit, the front, or in a feeding ministry, chaplaincy, or specialized ministry?

This degree is the benchmark for pastoral ministry study and approval for ordination, into Word and Sacrament rostered leadership.

The Master of Divinity program prepares persons for ordained ministry or for pastoral/leadership service in congregations and other settings. The program provides the necessary tools and resources for the spiritual, vocational, professional, and theological requirements of pastoral leadership. Courses are offered on both campuses in various formats: residential, hybrid, intensive, and online. Students may complete the degree via a “residency” track with mostly on-campus courses or a “distributed learning” track, utilizing online and intensive courses.
