Why Pursue the M.A. in Ministry Leadership with the Large Church Pastors Cohort?

If you are a visionary pastor of a 1,000+ member church, this cohort is for you.

Do you pastor a 1,000+ member church and hope to break past the 2,000 barrier? Future Church Company and the Wheaton College Graduate School are partnering together to form a unique cohort of large church pastors who will explore meaningful and lasting church growth in Wheaton’s M.A. in Ministry Leadership program. 

The core of the M.A. in Ministry Leadership curriculum focuses on three competency areas: mission, Bible and theology, and leadership. In your cohort, you will study each of these areas with a distinct focus on what it means to inspire development and propel growth in your congregation. In this modular program of online and in-person courses, you will learn from church growth experts like founder of Auxano and Future Church Company Will Mancini and Wheaton College’s Dr. Ed Stetzer, you will network and work alongside like-minded pastors in your cohort, and you will be empowered to infuse these encouragements and insights back into your ministry team. Thanks to the flexible learning format, you can do all this while still pursing your ministry.
