The Women’s Leadership Studies concentration will help students develop both ministry values and skills to make genuine connections with others.
The Women’s Leadership Studies Program will provide leadership skills related to the organization and administration of ministry programs in church, parachurch and mission environments while internalizing a biblical worldview of dependency on God.
The MDiv degree program provides an optimal curriculum in graduate theological study to prepare men and women for various ministry roles. The three-year program requires 75 hours of study. There are eight concentrations: General Studies, Pastoral Studies, Pastoral Counseling, Christian Ministry, Exegetical Studies, Intercultural Studies, Women’s Leadership, and Chaplaincy Studies. Advanced Standing credit may be obtained for up to 18 credit hours of the MDiv degree and 36 credit hours may be transferred from an accredited institution. The combination of Advanced Standing and Transfer Credit is limited to 36 credit hours.
For students who desire to minister to women and provide quality ministry programs to nurture and support faith development.

Students will explore the various roles women played in the OT against the backdrop of the ancient world.
Instead of trying to fix others in pain, soul care attempts to incarnate the presence of God in the life of another and allow God to use you to be his hands and feet.
This course will help you see that ministry is not just about doing the ministry yourself, but teaching others to join you in various arenas of ministry.
This course looks at the life of Jesus to learn from Him as the Master Teacher, Leader and Discipler.
Through reading and writing, pastoral interviews, you will learn about: servant leadership, mentoring, visionary leadership, and leading as a change agent.
