Ohio Christian University offers a Masters of Arts in Ministry degree for pastors or lay leaders who wish to further their education to better serve their communities. The program develops the student’s ministry and theology skills, whether the student opts for paid or lay ministry.
The Pastoral Care and Counseling Concentration is designed for those ministers who are called to a counseling ministry. The program is not designed to qualify the graduate to work as a licensed counselor. Completion of the “Pastoral Care and Counseling” concentration verifies successful completion of the courses required to earn the concentration and does not constitute a certificate or license that is required under Ohio law of any other state law to engage in the practice of professional counseling.
