I’d recommend GBS’s MA for the same reason I recommend GBS’s BAs. 他们走得更深.

It’s not about head knowledge 和 it’s not about a “feelings” religion either. I see a lot of educated pastors who are professional performers. 这不是GBS.  I think it’s a good balance of what the Christian life is. That’s what they’re teaching pastors to be.


研究生, 文学硕士

Master of Arts in Ministry


This degree is designed for those with Bible college undergrad degrees who want grad-level 神学 和 ministry training.

It has an 18-hour core of Bible 和 神学 和 an 18-hour customizable concentration defined by each student.

The concentration can consist of classes on Bible, 神学, 护教学, 说教, or graduate classes in some other field transferred from another school. Because this is a ministry degree, at least six concentration credits will need to be in practical 神学.

The guiding requirement is that your concentration must work together with the Bible 和 神学 core to equip you to minister in your field, whether that is pastoring, 牧师服务, 业务, 或者别的什么. We’ll work with you at the beginning of your degree to define your concentration.



  • hold an earned BA or equivalent (for example, a BS or BRE).
  • have completed 30 undergrad credits of Bible 和 神学.
  • have an undergrad GPA of 2.5或以上. However, applicants with a lower GPA will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

A GRE test is not required. No knowledge of Greek 和 Hebrew is required.

If needed, undergrad Bible 和 神学 courses are 网上. For a list of suggested undergrad Bible 和 神学 courses, see the 研究生目录.
