If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.
(I Timothy 3:1)
Is the Lord calling you to serve as a pastor, assistant, youth pastor, missionary, evangelist, or Bible teacher?
If so, consider the Master of Arts in Biblical Studies program that emphasizes biblical languages, biblical studies, and theological courses, while providing you with classroom opportunities to learn about practical pastoral issues. You’ll benefit from professors skilled in all aspects of ministry as well as the personal mentoring of experienced pastors as you serve in a local church.
The objectives of the Master of Arts in Biblical Studies are:
- Acquainted with classic theology, as well as current trends in theology
- Seeking a spiritually fervent life of ministry
- Competent to discern current trends and their relationship to biblical truth
- Faithful to the Holy Spirit’s work through God’s Word in his or her personal life and ministry
- Desirous of ministry as a missionary, youth or assistant pastor, or service in a camp ministry, campus ministry, Bible class, Bible literature work, or any other area of local church responsibility
- Capable of further seminary training by developing the research and communication skills necessary to successful seminary education
