Evangelism and Leadership

Our mission is to develop Christian leaders skilled in theory and practice for culturally-relevant service in a constantly changing world.


Welcome from Dr. Ed Stetzer

Dr. Stetzer was recently appointed the new Billy Graham Chair and Executive Director of the Billy Graham Center for Evangelism at Wheaton College and chair of the Evangelism and Leadership degrees at Wheaton College Graduate School. He will be directly involved in shaping the vision of the M.A. degrees while teaching and mentoring students.

Dr. Stetzer is a prolific author and well-known conference and seminar leader who has planted, revitalized, and pastored churches; trained pastors and church planters, and held visiting professorships at several academic institutions. We invite you to come study with Dr. Stetzer and explore our M.A. in Evangelism and Leadership and M.A. in Missional Church Movements degrees.

Master of Arts Degrees

  • The Masters in Evangelism and Leadership is a degree for leaders with evangelistic passion and missional edge. It will motivate and equip you to become a change agent for the gospel in whatever church, organizational, marketplace, or missionary context in which you find yourself.
  • The Masters in Missional Church Movements is a degree for church and parachurch planters, reproducers, movement makers, and entrepreneurial leaders.

    Training by World-Class Leaders

    In addition to Wheaton's teaching faculty, both the M.A. in Evangelism and Leadership and the M.A. in Missional Church Movements degrees provide guest lecturers from world-class leaders:

  • Alan Hirsch
  • Dave Ferguson
  • Ed Stetzer
  • John Ferguson
  • Mike Breen
  • Neil Cole
  • Paco Amador
  • Wayne Gordon

    As part of both the Wheaton College Graduate School and the Billy Graham Center for Evangelism, we also serve as a connection to all of their outstanding resources, networks, and people.

    Flexible Options for Completing an M.A. Degree

    Both of these M.A. degrees can be completed in several formats in order to meet the diverse needs of our students. These formats include completing the degree as a residential student (full-time or part-time), in a cohort (full-time or part-time) taking some intensive classes on campus and others at a distance, and also provides the opportunity to take some classes at HoneyRock - Outdoor Center for Leadership Development of Wheaton College. Wheaton College undergraduate students also have the option of completing their studies with an Accelerated M.A. degree.
