In keeping with Campbell University Divinity School’s continual desire to provide training that Christian leaders need to fulfill their call to ministry, the Divinity School has created a Master of Arts in Christian Ministry Degree, available beginning this fall.
“We are so pleased to offer this new degree,” says Dr. Andy Wakefield, Dean of the Divinity School. “It will allow focused preparation for ministry that will be especially suited for and accessible to persons who may already be serving in churches, in lay ministry, and in other ministry contexts. It will be an ideal degree to combine with other professional degrees or areas of expertise for someone who understands his or her calling in terms of bi-vocational ministry, whether that be in the church, on the mission field, serving as a lawyer, doctor, teacher, businessperson, or wherever God may lead.”
The Master of Arts in Christian Ministry (MACM) is a professional degree designed to prepare men and women for specialized ordained and lay ministry. The degree provides a foundation in the theological disciplines and specialized training in an area of specialized ministries. Currently those areas include Congregational Leadership, Youth Ministry, Teaching the Bible, Christian Education, and Children’s Ministry. Additional specializations are already planned and will be developed as opportunities allow. Forty-eight credit hours are required for completion of the degree.
The new MACM will serve a purpose similar to the Master of Arts in Christian Education that it is replacing but will offer a more flexible structure, that more clearly allows students to focus not just on Christian education but on one of a variety of specialized ministries.
