Frequently Asked Questions

You’ll save time and money. The streamlined nature of our degree allows for a 75 hour degree as compared to a 90+ degree at the average seminary. We do this by compressing some coursework into one semester that is often spread over two or more semesters in a typical seminary program.

Another difference is our emphasis on leadership. Many seminaries only require one course on Church Administration, our M.Div. requires three courses in leadership, dealing with practical issues like budgets, staff, working with volunteers, conflict management, managing change, vision, and so on.

Beyond those differences, there is value in studying for ministry within a university setting, where the student has the opportunity to interact with their peers preparing for other vocational roles.
