These graduate programs integrate academic experiences, spiritual formation activities, and skills development to enhance intellectual, spiritual, personal, and functional readiness for effective ministry leadership.
To meet the church's current and future needs, ministry must be both biblically authentic and culturally relevant, and preparation for Christian ministry must be as thorough as possible and of the highest caliber possible.
The College of Ministry at Northwest University seeks to meet this need by offering graduate education in a variety of contexts for those who are engaged in ministry.
Ministry involves the person of God communicating a divine message to people to achieve divine ends. Those who minister for God must know Him intimately, must be able to exegete His Word accurately, must understand and appreciate the context in which they minister, and must comprehend God's eternal purpose and be able to relate it to the church and ministry.
These M.A. programs integrate academic experiences, spiritual formation activities, and skills development to enhance intellectual, spiritual, personal, and functional readiness for effective ministry leadership.
The graduate courses offered by the College of Ministry at Northwest University are structured to meet the schedules and the learning styles of adults who are already engaged in ministry/careers. The goal is to provide structure and accountability to ensure progress, while at the same time offering the flexibility for people to study at the pace that works best for them.
