Master of Ministry
(on-campus or online)

Experience, Scripture and Ministry Driven

You are engaged and experienced in pastoral ministry. You want to sharpen your biblical knowledge and practical skills. You need a program that balances theological scholarship and practical hands-on training that will equip you with skills you can immediately apply to your ministry.

Credit Hours

Accessible and Practical 

This 30-credit hour Master of Ministry program is designed for those who already know what it is like to serve in ministry. This program will enhance your biblical communication and spiritual formation, as well as your leadership, analysis and administrative skills. In addition, you have the opportunity to complete this degree in just two years on campus or online!

Select Your Ministry Track

You were designed by God with specific abilities and interests. At BBS, you can hone in on the areas that will help you reach your individual goals. Select a concentration that will prepare you in your current and future ministry.

Pastoral Ministry Track

The Pastoral Ministry Track is designed for men who are preparing for pastoral ministry roles in a local church and other ministry professions that would lead toward ordination (1 Timothy 3; Titus 1).

General Ministry Track

The General Ministry Track is designed for men and women who are preparing for non-pastoral ministry roles in the church and parachurch organizations that would not lead toward ordination.

Your Courses

Choose to earn your degree on campus, online or a combination of both. These formats are designed to work with your schedule, allowing you to choose the method of learning that works best for you and your goals.

You can complete the coursework for your degree entirely online, or you can experience once-a-week classes on the nationally recognized beautiful campus of Clarks Summit University.

You may also be able to complete select courses in a two-week module. Modules are full courses concentrated into two weeks of on-campus study throughout the year; they may require work before and after the course on your own. On-campus housing and meal plans are available.

All courses are 3 credits unless noted.
