The online Master of Arts in Pastoral Theology program prepares students for supportive roles to those serving in positions of ministerial leadership instead of focusing on the development of particular ministerial skills. Students will learn to work as associate pastors, church administrators, lay leaders, and Bible teachers.

Students are able to choose areas of emphasis that include the areas of:
- Old Testament
- New Testament
- Systematic Theology
- Church History
- Applied Theology
- Bachelors degree from a regionally accredited college
- Minimum 2.5 GPA
