Master of Ministry Degree

Online        On campus

What does your ministry need most?

Answer that question, then choose your Master of Ministry courses. Through your study, you’ll dig deep into the Word of God, find the answers to problems you’re facing, and learn how to stop future problems before they start.

In the midst of your active ministry, it can be hard to systematically study the Bible and “make time” for the training that will help you grow yourself and others. The M.Min. at Pensacola Theological Seminary gives you the flexibility to strengthen your ministry while still keeping up with everyday responsibilities.

Since Doctrine and History of Preservation of the Text is the only specific required class, your M.Min. will be unique to you and practical for where you are. When you graduate, you’ll be better equipped to share the Word of God—even passages that right now might seem impossible to explain or apply.

Top FAQs

If I study online, will I have to watch lectures live?

While you’ll get the same full-length lectures as on-campus students, they’re prerecorded in-classroom so you can fit them around your schedule. Every lecture will be available 24/7 on your easy-to-use online dashboard.

Can I transfer credits from somewhere else?

Up to 3 hours of approved graduate credit can be transferred prior to starting your Master of Ministry degree.

Can I take a semester off between classes?

Feel free to take semesters off when you need to! If you take off 12 months or more between classes, though, you’ll be considered a reenrolling student and need to reapply. Also keep in mind you have 7 years to complete your degree from the date you start.
