The Graduate Program offers students a more in-depth study of biblical, theological, and professional studies skills required in ministry preparation. The program aims to satisfy five major objectives: biblical exposition, spiritual development, theological integration, ministry preparation, and Christian worldview. Graduates will be qualified to serve as pastors, associate pastors, missionaries, ministry workers, or in preparation for doctoral studies.
The Master of Arts in Theological Studies (MATS) is designed for students who desire a master’s level degree with an emphasis in biblical, theological, and pastoral ministries. The program is also available for those students with no biblical studies in their undergraduate experience.
