EMPOWERING FAITHFUL CHRISTIAN LEADERS

for every generation, for every culture, for every community.

The purpose of the Master of Arts in Christian Ministry program is to equip competent Christian leaders in some form of specialized ministry through contextualized theological education, with a focus to help Christian leaders to integrate faith and life through an interdisciplinary approach.  This degree will be offered online with three language options (English, Chinese and Spanish).  In some specializations there may also be opportunities for students to gather in regional onsite learning.  The courses are designed and guided by highly qualified teachers in a student-centered, context-sensitive, narrative-based learning environment.
