This program prepares students for effective leadership in local church, para-church organizations, or other ministry related calling. The M.A. program will prepare students for leadership in a number of ministry fields or for post-graduate studies, whether with HIU or another institution. The Ministry program provides a high level of flexibility that allows students to tailor make a degree that meets their individual ministry goals. Students will choose courses that meet their personal goals and concentration, guided by a balanced framework that organizes courses into four key categories: Scriptural Development, Service in Context, Spiritual Formation and Skills for Ministry.
