The college has a long history of training for ministry.
Programs continue to equip ministers for work with congregations, train teachers for religious instruction, and empower professionals for leadership roles with non-profit Christian organizations. Graduate studies with the college provide advanced theological learning primarily focused on practical ministry contexts.
Whether you are experienced in ministry or just starting out on the adventure, the MACM provides a good toolkit for your work and enhances your pastoral presence and leadership. We'll teach you how to apply theological principles and minister to those that need you the most.
Study and practice the pastoral arts in the unique environment of the Tennessee Prison for Women. The MACM (LIFE) degree combines ‘outside’ and ‘inside’ students into one learning community.
Grow in your knowledge of Scripture and the theological traditions of Christianity across the world. Learn to share those resources with others in meaningful ways that support lives of faith in your community and engage the world around you. All the while you will undergo and appreciate your own personal formation as you learn to lead others in transformative change.
As a terminal degree in our field, the D.Min. is best understood as a professional doctorate for ministry practitioners. Be challenged in your own formational journey as a leader of your community and contribute a meaningful resource to the world of the church through your original research focused on the practices of ministry.
Broaden your theological and historical knowledge within our Christian tradition. Develop reasoning skills that will prove useful in conversation and advanced academic studies. You'll also find it easier to advance your career within academia, ministry, or even Christian publishing.
