Graduate School of Theology

Welcome from the Academic Dean

Dr. Brandon Fredenburg

Lubbock Christian University’s Graduate School of Theology provides an accessible, affordable environment for graduate students to pursue rigorous ministry and academic preparation for their kingdom callings. Our faculty’s superb academic training, coupled with extensive prior and current ministry experience, ensures students receive a high-quality, practical, ministry education. All our graduates are better equipped to serve in current positions or well-prepared to enter new ministries. Some even pursue additional graduate or doctoral study.

The Graduate School of Theology gladly welcomes students from any Christian tradition, with a special desire to equip and encourage those from churches of Christ and other Restoration Movement congregations.

God is at work within every human heart, in every village and great city, and on every continent. And we may participate in what God is doing. Perhaps an LCU Graduate School Theology degree will enrich your calling. Donna Taylor can help your discovery.

We invite you to partner with us — joining in God’s work, together.

Delivery Format

Graduate School of Theology degree programs are delivered in online and hybrid (blended) formats. Students in the Master of Divinity and Master of Arts in Christian Ministry degrees must take at least one-third (1/3) of their credit hours in a hybrid format, which includes an on-campus classroom experience. The Master of Arts – Biblical Interpretation degree may be earned entirely online by students who have at least 18 undergraduate credit hours in biblical studies, ministry, missions, or a related field approved by the academic dean.


The Graduate School of Theology, as a community for theological reflection and spiritual formation, prepares men and women for service to the Triune God and leadership in various forms of Christian ministry around the world. As we pursue these purposes, we commit to diversity among the faculty, staff, and student body; to equip students for ministry in the global context; and to adhere to rigorous academic standards as we collectively engage Christian scripture and the Christian heritage in awareness of our Stone-Campbell Restoration Movement history.
