Are you seeking to learn how to navigate the urban church or city environment? The Master of Arts in Urban Ministry Leadership will help you develop new ministry resources and empower others to overcome the urban realities through ministry. You will learn how to assess, engage and integrate an in-depth understanding of the challenges of ministry in a complex, diverse and dynamic urban context. The M.A. in Urban Ministry Leadership will provide you with biblical and theological foundations to help you to transform your thinking as a practical theologian and practitioner.
M.A. in Urban Ministry Leadership students are typically already experienced in ministry on a part-time or full-time basis. They may be pastors, civil servants, community leaders, human service professionals or para-church lay leaders looking to increase their knowledge and skills and enhance their ability to make a difference in the public or private sectors of society.
I chose Gordon-Conwell specifically to study under Dr. Haddon Robinson, who is by far the greatest expository teacher and preacher I know. His program completely revolutionized my approach to preparing and delivering my messages to our students. I was blown away at how much this degree helped me in my ministry.”
