About this course
Northwest Nazarene University's online Masters in Pastoral Ministry program is designed to provide theological education to those preparing for vocational Christian ministry. Our faculty members hold doctoral degrees and include pastors with extensive experience as leading-edge practitioners, scholars with wide-ranging teaching experience and professors with proficiency in cross-cultural and online teaching contexts. Students work with a pastoral mentor and can earn the degree within 28 months with no residential requirement.
Students in NNU's MAPM program begin their studies with a zero-credit online orientation, followed by twelve three-credit courses and a four-credit supervised ministry course. While many of our students come from traditions outside the Church of the Nazarene, many Nazarene students will be encouraged to know that NNU's fully online MAPM program fulfills the academic requirements for ordination required by the denomination.
