MASTER OF PASTORAL STUDIES - REQUIREMENTS


The Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies (MAPS) embraces four areas of development - intellectual, ministerial, human, and spiritual. In addition to a ministerial heart, effective pastoral ministers embody personal and spiritual maturity, knowledge of theology and other disciplines, and pastoral skill. This degree provides a uniquely systematic and in-depth education in pastoral ministry's knowledge base and methodologies; it provides ministers a broad and deep foundation in religious thought, and lays the groundwork for an effective and well-informed pastoral practice.

Students who enroll in the MAPS degree can study under the general MAPS program or focus their studies in one of three areas of "specialization."

Who is our Pastoral Studies major designed for?

  • Anyone with a shepherd’s heart desiring to serve a church, ministry, or small group,
