About this course
The Master of Arts in Diaconal Ministry degree program is designed for students interested in service in the church as a diaconal minister.
Typically, diaconal ministers work on the boundaries of church and world seeking to empower, equip, and support the baptized people of God in ministry and mission. Diaconal ministers are ministers of the word of God carrying out a particular service in one or more areas such as education, administration, outreach and evangelism, care, music and the arts.
The Master of Arts in Diaconal Ministry program aims at integrating skills for ministry with theological reflection. It is ideal for those candidates for church service who want to bridge between a congregational or local church setting, and the mission of the church within society.
