Program Details

The Master of Arts in Transformational Leadership degree offered by Bethel University in Minnesota is a program of study that is available to students in a hybrid format. The hybrid format involves students taking courses in the traditional on-campus format as well as in the online learning format. This program aims to help its students acquire a strong biblical foundation and leadership skills. This program hinges on the concepts of strong biblical foundations, such as hermeneutics, exegesis, and theology; the 4-R approach to leadership: relationships, roles, responsibilities, and results; the application of practical course material in the context of contemporary ministry; and the development of leadership through mentoring, reflection, and assessment.

This program is a three year program intended for individuals who wish to advance their skills, knowledge, and ministry without having to interrupt their daily lives and responsibilities. Twice a year, students enrolled in the Transformational Leadership program convene at the Bethel University St. Paul campus for one week of intensive class sessions. An individual enrolled in this program can aim either to sharpen their skills in their current ministry or to take on new opportunities in ministry. This program will prepare students who are not already involved in a ministry for new opportunities to serve in a broad range of settings. These settings include: missions organizations, general church staff, associate and senior pastoring, youth ministry, and small group ministry. This program also prepares students to transition into the Master of Divinity program at the end of the Master of Arts program.

This program is based on the quarter system. A student must complete 96 credit hours in quarter credits. Courses include Hermeneutics, Evangelism and Missions, Transformational Leadership, Ministry Leadership Foundations, Communication and Organizational Leadership, and Measurement-Based Leadership.
