Scholarship with a Shepherd’s Heart

Master of Divinity

Home » Academics » Master of Divinity

At the core of Phoenix Seminary is our Master of Divinity Program, which offers effective and practical learning for leaders in all areas of ministry. Study includes biblical interpretation, theological analysis, church history, and effective use of skills in preaching, church leadership, counseling, and cross-cultural ministry. Thorough preparation and scholarship are the best developmental tools for successful ministry. Therefore our study programs have depth, rigor, and detail, including biblical languages and theological primacy.

AP MDiv

We also offer accelerated programs for students that have finished a four-year bible or theological degree in the last five years. This is all offered alongside a 1:1 mentor relationship that develops the whole capacity for ministry in the student.
