The Master of Arts in Educational Ministries program will help you reach your ministry goals by focusing your coursework on three themes in educational ministry: Congregational Life (family, age-specific and inter-generational ministry), Collaborative Ministry Engagement (leadership, small groups, teams), and Formational Learning (formational discipleship, teaching, and learning).
The flexibility of this program means that your course options will vary widely according to your interests, what’s available at particular Extension Sites, and courses you can take by cross-registering with other seminaries in the Association of Theological Schools (ATS) consortium. You’ll want to pay attention to the most recent version of the Academic Catalog as well as to the course schedules for your Extension Site. Courses you’ll take will include the following:
