The purpose of the Master of Arts in Ministry to Women is to prepare students for effective ministry through courses that focus on roles of biblical womanhood, teaching and discipleship and evangelism specifically to women.

Courses will provide an overview of biblical womanhood, insight into counseling, teaching and discipling women and girls and instruction in the practical outworking of the Christian life. The program will also provide opportunities for guided experience through a supervised field ministry requirement, thus enabling students to apply the knowledge gained in the classroom. Admission to this program is limited to women holding a bachelor’s degree or its equivalent who also meet all other admission requirements for the seminary. This degree can be completed through a combination of online and hybrid courses. Students can live where they serve and still get a robust theological education.

Program Courses

I absolutely loved studying in the Master of Theology program. After finishing an MA, it was the perfect next step to dive deeper into an area of study that I was interested in. I loved being able to take more specialized classes that I wouldn't otherwise have taken as part of my MA, and I learned so much through the process of researching and writing.
