Concentrations

 

The online MACM offers three specializations, which we’ll build into your degree. Choose the one that is right for your calling:

  • Pastoral ministry is meant for the senior pastor, preaching pastor, or solo pastor. This concentration is beneficial if you have years of ministry experience but desire biblical and theological foundations. You will gain specific help in preaching and relationship building in a congregation.
  • Student ministry is intended to help youth pastors or children’s pastors who desire more experience or training. This specialization will develop your biblical and theological foundations, plus help you develop specific content for youth and children.
  • Preaching is a specialization designed to help you build effective communication strategies within the congregational setting. This will increase your understanding of speaking methods, and strengthen your delivery of the preached word.
