Master of Science in Family Ministry

The M.S. degree in Family Ministry prepares students for ministry to families. An increasing phenomenon in the contemporary church is the development of the "Family Ministry" position. This trend corresponds with increasing pressure on the American family. To meet the need of training ministers for this challenge, the Department of Biblical Studies has teamed up with our Department of Behavioral Sciences to create a forty-eight hour degree that draws from our Family Life Education and Ministry courses to create this cutting-edge new program.
