Master of Arts in Christian Leadership

Program Description:

The Master of Arts in Christian Leadership (MACL) is an online graduate program designed to prepare students for ministry, both lay and vocational, in their churches. Building upon the core elements of biblical and theological knowledge, the program focuses on developing your skills for serving as a leader in Christian ministry, in whatever setting God leads you. Drawing from our specific focus on the Bible, graduates of the MACL program at HBU can responsibly apply biblical truths to contemporary ministry settings.

Our 36-hour MACL program is built upon a 15-hour core in Bible and Theology. Students will then take 12 hours of electives focused on Practical Theology (i.e., ministry classes). A particularly important aspect of the program is the opportunity to be discipled through the Spiritual Formation and Internship programs. For the remaining nine hours, you have the flexibility to choose from our offering of classes in our traditional areas of biblical studies, theology and practical ministry, or in our other MA program areas: biblical languages, apologetics, classics, and philosophy.
