Together in partnership, Wheaton College and the the Illinois District Council Assemblies of God offer an M.A. in Ministry Leadership for those with a desire to deepen their faith and raise their level of leadership while collaborating with others. Through this program, you will add a new dimension to your ministry as you learn from practitioners, church builders, and ministers who have worked in both small and large community church contexts. Through this advanced degree, students receive Christ-centered, academically challenging, and onsite training from credible educators and proven practitioners to equip them for effective local church leadership and redemptive community engagement in the 21st century.

There are many benefits to those who are part of an Illinois District Council Assemblies of God cohort or student group. Cohorts of fifteen or more graduate students receive a 25% tuition discount, and self-paged groups of less than fifteen students receive a 15% discount. In a cohort, you enjoy the extra benefit of journeying together as a group of like-minded students for the entire length of the program. As a self-paced student, you still get the benefits of the program while learning on your own schedule. As part of the 42 hour (11 classes) degree, students take courses that attend to issues, concepts, and questions faced by ministers and leaders in the Assemblies of God. The unique degree features both online and onsite instruction; ongoing connection with peers and professors through a dedicated social media account; contextual coaching for those already in ministry, and more.
