Acts 29

The degree will be a Master of Arts in Ministry Leadership and it is meant for the ministry practitioner. This 42-hour degree will not only have biblical and theological components but practical classes such as Organizational Change and Leadership in Ministry, Congregational Leadership, and Preaching. These courses are taught by Wheaton professors like Ed Stetzer and others.

The classes are done both online and through in-class intensives. That means that you’ll meet as a cohort 1-2 times per year for about 6 days—the rest is done online.

One of the perks of our partnership with Wheaton College is that as an Acts 29 network partner, you are able to get a 25% tuition discount if we form a full cohort of students. You’ll receive this discount each semester you’re in the cohort until you graduate.

We’re starting the first course this year. Matt Chandler is so committed to this school and program he has decided to host the first class, Church: Movements and Models at The Village Church. Check out the entire degree program here.

So, if you’ve been contemplating getting a master’s degree or are looking for something that is theologically robust but still practical in ministry, you’ll truly appreciate and value this MA in Ministry Leadership.

For more information about the program, contact Wendy Larson at wendy.larson@wheaton.edu and tell her you’re interested in the Acts 29 partnership. If you would like to apply, go to wheaton.edu/apply.
