Grow Your Knowledge & Ministry
As Christians, we’re charged with spreading the good news of the Gospel, the story of God’s love and His redeeming grace. You know this grace is abundant and free to all who accept Him, and you’re eager to share this message of hope.
Our Master of Arts (M.A.) in Biblical and Theological Studies can help you grow your ministry. In this program, you learn the history and meaning behind scripture while also gaining knowledge of biblical interpretation.
You also learn how to explain God’s story in meaningful and unique ways. This program is perfect for those already involved in ministry roles and is also appropriate for laypeople who want to better understand the subtleties of our faith.
