My degree has changed trajectories in my ministry. Our church is seeing more people come to Christ than ever before. I attribute it to how God has used this program to help us think about evangelism differently.— Darryl McAuley, Lead Pastor, McDiarmid Drive Alliance Church, Brandon, MB, Canada, MA
Why Study Ministry Leadership at Wheaton?
As cultural changes accelerate, we need ministry leaders skilled in theory and practice who are able to make disciples and pursue Jesus’ mission in the world. The M.A. in Ministry Leadership is built with three core competency areas to train culturally savvy leaders for a life of service: Mission, Bible and Theology, and Leadership.
You will learn from world-class leaders who are driving scholarship in thought and praxis. With experience in pastoral ministry, church planting, intercultural studies, missiology, and much more, the diverse and accomplished faculty are essential to the uniqueness and caliber of the program.
As a part of our mission to commit to the development of missional organizations, we have developed partnerships with various ministries and organizations in order to make graduate education more affordable.
Students currently involved with any of these ministries may qualify for a generous tuition scholarship for all courses.
Many students work in their current business or ministry while completing the program part time. This way, students come to campus just three weeks a year and are able to immediately apply their learning in their current context while earning a Master's degree.
