Program Outline

The goal of this program is to help students gain various perspectives in the nature and philosophy of Christian ministries while establishing their own perspective. The historical and present trends of church developments and ministerial practices are explored in order to help realize the appropriate way to contextualize ministerial skills and formats. The final dissertation requires students to demonstrate an integration of theology, ministerial philosophy, and contextual practices which is workable in their future ministries.


The curriculum focuses on spiritual renewal, in-depth theological comprehension and enrichment of ministerial skills in pastoral ministry.

Suitable Candidates
