Master of Arts in Ministry


The Master of Arts in Ministry is designed specifically with the minister and church leader in mind. 

This graduate-level program of study equips students with a wide-ranging knowledge of biblical and theological studies along with exposure to a variety of church-related ministries.  Persons serving in a role as a senior pastor or in support role are provided with practical skills on how to function in a local church or support ministry role. 

Our Master of Arts degrees are now a pathway to the PhD in Organizational Leadership and Doctor of Ministry degrees at Luther Rice. Visit the respective doctoral pages to learn more.
