The Master of Arts - Christian Leadership prepares you with a foundational education in biblical studies, theology and personal ministry formation. You will deepen your understanding of the gospel and how it can be lived out in all areas of life - at home, at work, in your community and church - to effectively serve where God has called you and confidently disciple others in their Christian faith. You can also focus your degree in one of a number of areas of study, including Apologetics, Chaplaincy and Spiritual Care, Church Ministries and more.
*The Master of Arts - Christian Leadership contains 53 credit hours and can be done in two years of full-time study, or over several years of part-time study. This degree is granted co-jointly by Trinity Western University and the seminary in which the student is enrolled.
