Leadership Skills for Oregon Ministers
NU Oregon’s Master of Arts in Ministry Leadership program was designed with Oregon leaders in mind. Whether you desire to go deeper in your theological and biblical understanding, more fully embrace your vocation in ministry, or gain a wider perspective of God’s redemptive work in the world, our MAML program is sure to make you a better leader. At NU Oregon, you will learn from distinguished faculty who combine a passion for the work of the Kingdom with significant scholarly training. We believe your investment in a graduate education will help you make a difference as you embrace the good work to which God has called you.
The Master of Arts in Ministry Leadership (MAML) is a 36-credit degree designed to help students develop a biblical, theological, and pastoral framework for leadership that is academically rigorous, praxis-oriented, and facilitates the growth and development of missional leadership for the twenty-first century church.
Program Highlights and Structure
The MAML provides graduate students the opportunity to cultivate an academically informed biblical and theoretical approach for ministry leadership. This degree is concerned especially with developing and refining informed ministry practice and allows participants to develop ministry leadership skills helpful in their contexts. With the understanding that each set of ministry giftings and the varieties of settings in which ministry takes place are unique, this degree can provide a significant amount of elective space for students to explore their interests and develop their skills and perspectives. There is also the opportunity for students to take part in a concentration in Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE), preparatory for chaplaincy work.
For a full-time student, this program can take as little as two years, with courses scheduled across three annual terms (Fall, Spring, and Summer). The program delivery includes varied formats for class meetings (for example, monthly weekend intensives). In some situations, students may elect to complete certain courses via an online. This flexible delivery format is designed to accommodate the diverse needs of our graduate students.
