With a strong emphasis on learning in community, the MAGL brings together pastors, missionaries, and nonprofit leaders to learn primarily online with some face-to-face intensive coursework. Students sharpen, strengthen, and encourage one another as a "cohort"-a community of learning-under the tutelage of seasoned faculty and support staff.
The MAGL program is designed for those already serving in ministry. More than half of our current students are pastors and campus ministers. Others serve in nonprofit or parachurch ministry, cross-cultural work, and other vocations.
The 18-course, 72-unit program includes a 9-course cohort sequence that covers character development, biblical theology of mission, contemporary culture, missional church, leadership training, and organizational dynamics; and 9 electives that further enhance biblical, theological, and cultural understandings. MAGL meets the prerequisite courses for the Doctor of Missiology degree.
