Master of Arts in Christian Ministry

Olivet's M.A. in Christian Ministry is one of Olivet's newest degrees and offers you options for more advanced study.

It interweaves an academic and practical education for ministry - even if you have little or no undergraduate study in Bible, theology or ministry. You will start at the beginning, but then proceed at a graduate-level pace, because this M.A. program assumes that you are academically and personally mature.
