 The Master of Divinity program provides a concentration in Theological Studies, with a strong foundation of theology and a practical knowledge of biblical ministry methods. Our curriculum of 96 semester hours helps to prepare students for ordination and ministry in the local church.  Anyone called to ministry, regardless of his/her particular calling, should possess an intense knowledge of scripture and a deeper conviction and commitment to his/her own personal call to ministry.  Upon completion of the program, the student should demonstrate a greater knowledge of the Bible, an overall understanding of Biblical interpretation, and possess the ability to effectively use the Word of God in Christian ministry, as well as demonstrate the capacity to constructively exercise judgment and skill in areas vital to Pastoral ministry.
