The Master of Ministry program is designed to resource serving ministers for effective leadership in missional congregations by equipping them and developing in them theological and practical competencies with a missional focus in the practice of ministry. The program focuses on integrating the best available resources of scholarship, ministry specialists, and contemporary ministry models with the practice of ministry. As students follow one of two tracks, General and Youth Ministry, they design a study plan to meet specific learning objectives and to give focus to a culminating project. The Master of Ministry/Spanish, which is an online program designed for Spanish-proficient students, offers a pastoral track, requiring completion of nine courses and a culminating project.

This version of Olivet’s Master of Ministry program is offered entirely in Spanish. It was designed to resource Hispanic ministers for effective leadership in missional congregations by equipping them and developing in them theological and practical competencies with a missional focus in the practice of ministry. The program, designed for Spanish-proficient students, offers a pastoral track requiring completion of seven online courses and two on-site courses, culminating in a final master’s project.

30 hours

Note:


A cumulative GPA of 2.75 is required for graduation from the program, and no course counting toward graduation may carry a grade of less than a C.

Times and Format of Courses in the M. Min./Spanish Program

Although the M.Min/Spanish program is for the most part online, the two on-site courses required would follow the modular format.

Time Limits

A student is allowed six years from beginning the first graduate course to complete the entire M.Min. program. Coursework beyond six years is evaluated by the Program Coordinator, the Director of Graduate Studies, or the Dean of the School of Theology & Christian Ministry. Students granted permission for more than six years may be expected to meet current program requirements, and that may mean retaking one or more courses.
