The Masters of Arts in Christian Ministry, otherwise known as M.A.C.M., degree is designed to introduce students to theological reflection through interdisciplinary study. The degree offers students the opportunity to explore theological study in a general way or through theological reflection on a specific theme for the purpose of enriching their Christian service in both the church and the world.
This theological study is particularly suited to interdisciplinary discourse within More Than Conquerors College. The M.A.C.M. is a one-year degree encompassing five courses-15 credits, Internship or field work-9 credits, and a 100 page research paper completed in two semesters-6 credits. The M.A.C.M. is not intended to serve as direct preparation for ordained ministry or doctoral study.
The More Than Conquerors College student will learn to read, and interpret scripture and other Christian texts with greater understanding and clarity, will learn to think spiritually about the doctrines and practices of the church, and through the practice of theological reflection, discern how they might faithfully serve the church and the world.
