THE MASTER’S DEGREE PROGRAM
FOR PASTORAL THEOGY or Master/Doctor of Pastoral Theology
The Master’s Program for Pastoral Theology is for the individual who has completed a minimum of ten years in the Pastoral Role either as a senior pastor or an associate pastor in a church. The individual who completes this level is not only qualified to defend the Gospel, but publish books and teach others with accuracy and confidence. This degree require 45/90 credits of work beyond his or her 10+ years experience in pastoral ministry and is offered for those who desire specialized, advanced certification in a specific area. Since the student is at a point of developing mastery in his life, one demonstration of this mastery will be the student’s involvement in working in conjunction with his advisor in selecting the structure and course for his degree. (No other degree prerequisite is required because of the pastor's proven experience in his/her field.)
The 40-credit master’s degrees generally include:
· Approximately 30/42 credits which are the compilation of Sermons, papers, tapes, course development, or discoveries in the areas the pastor has specialized in during his 10+ years of service. i.e. church administration, counseling, theology, youth ministry, senior development, jail and hospital ministries, or a combination, etc.
· A Master's thesis - see THE500 for thesis requirements. This thesis may be published on the Bible College web pages for other minister to read, learn, and excel from your experiences. Psalms 34:11 LITV My sons, come, listen to Me; I will make known to you the fear of Jehovah.
· Compiling the 30/42 credits will be done by you and your advisor to meet the Bible College's standard of excellence. The credits will consist of past developments of sermons, lessons, and discoveries that you incorporated into your ministry. It may include book reports on certain topics that had a profound effect on your ministry.
Some examples are as follows:
1. Book reports on a Counseling Ministry within the church using such books as
a. Inner Healing by Michael Scanlan
b. Effective Biblical Counseling By: Larry Crabb
(If your Pastoral Master is based on books that built your ministry then there should be a minimum of 5 book reports.)

i.e. A rural church developing the farmers and ranchers for the Kingdom Planting.
