Missions Leaders Cohort

Why Pursue the M.A. in Ministry Leadership with the Missions Leaders Cohort?

If you are a missions leader who never had the chance to attend seminary or chose not to attend because you did not think it would apply to you, we are excited to announce a new opportunity for you. You can now complete a graduate degree with Wheaton College Graduate School in a cohort specifically designed around the kind of work you do.

Missions leader roles have reached a stage of complexity that warrants advanced study and preparation. Those who complete this program will provide thought-leadership and practical expertise in the area of missions. Join world-class professors and leaders like Dr. Ed Stetzer, Dr. Scott Moreau, and other guests who are leaders in missions in a practical program that fosters the holistic development of spiritual maturity, theological integration, and skilled leadership.

The M.A. in Ministry Leadership is rich in both knowledge and practice. The core of the curriculum focuses on three competency areas: Bible and theology, mission, and leadership.  The cohort model allows leaders in the same ministry field to learn from one another, network, and encourage each other. The collaboration that you will experience in the cohort will increase your learning and facilitate application of classroom material directly to your work as a missions leader. 

We hold week-long classes at Wheaton College twice a year. The remainder of the courses are completed online. Thanks to the flexible learning format, you can do all this while continuing in ministry leadership. The first class will be October 4-8, 2021 and taught (in person) by Dr. Robert Gallagher, our Professor Emeritus of Intercultural Studies.  

We want to make this program more affordable, so we are offering up to a 25% tuition reduction for students who join the cohort.
