Why an MDiv?

Teach what the Bible truly says.

Students gain competency in Greek and Hebrew, which equips them to engage the Scriptures in their original language, ensuring that the lessons they draw from God’s Word are rooted in the Bible’s original meaning. Classes in systematic theology and church history prepare students to teach from a deep understanding of the Bible’s full message and the Christian community’s witness across different eras and cultures.

Train for real-life ministry.

Students graduate prepared to put the truths of Scripture into daily practice. Classes in ethics, evangelism, missions, preaching, and Christian leadership ensure that students have the practical knowledge and ministry experience they need to put their education into practice on a church staff, as a lay leader, or within a non-profit or parachurch ministry.

Fully prepare for the pastorate.

This broad curriculum of biblical study, practical ministry, and preaching is ideal preparation for the work of pastoring. An MDiv equips students with a deep well of Scriptural knowledge and a broad set of ministry skills, both of which are essential for engaging the varied and challenging work of serving a local church as their pastor.
