3 MA in MinistrY Lancaster Bible college MISSION Lancaster Bible College exists to educate Christian students to think and live a biblical worldview and to proclaim Christ by serving Him in the Church and society. About the Institution Lancaster Bible College offers a full range of collegiate programming, from noncredit biblical enrichment to undergraduate, master s, and doctoral degree programs. Since 1933, the college s Bible-centered education has helped students follow God s plan for their personal and professional lives. Studies take place in a caring environment that integrates biblical teaching across a culturally diverse curriculum. Its faculty bring a wealth of academic credentials and real-world experience to each class. ACCREDITATION LBC is an accredited, nondenominational institution which offers undergraduate, graduate, and non-traditional education. The institution is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSche). LBC is accredited by the Association for Biblical Higher Education Commission on Accreditation (ABHE). Graduates from the MEd programs receive state certification from the Pennsylvania Department of Education. LBC also has affiliate status with the Council for Christian College & Universities (CCCU). Lancaster Bible College is also approved by the U.S. Department of Justice for the training of nonimmigrant international students. LBC s International Leadership, Education and Discipleship (ilead) Center offers biblically-based graduate education and non-degree learning opportunities. The ilead Center s regionally-accredited graduate degree programs equip students for Christian leadership in an ever-changing world. Master of Arts in Ministry The Master of Arts in Ministry (MAM) program prepares students for biblical servant leadership in church and church-related ministries. Through contemporary biblical and theological scholarship, this professional ministry training enables students to pursue their unique calling. Upon graduating from the MAM program, students have the foundation necessary for a broad range of careers. Graduates have become pastors, church and parachurch staff, Christian education specialists, and student ministry specialists. Graduates of this degree program: Have a character consistent with biblical servant leadership Serve God and humanity through the use of essential communication, leadership and management skills Are committed to the core beliefs and values of the Christian faith 3

4 Pastoral Studies Program Design Getting a graduate education doesn t require putting your life on hold. LBC understands that you have other commitments to God, family and work. That s why the MAM program is designed for adult learners who are employed full-time. The ilead Center offers convenient and flexible scheduling options to accommodate prior commitments while you continue your education. Designed for Life-Engaged Learners Life-engaged learners are students who are actively engaged in family, church, and professional life while participating in the Master of Arts in Ministry program. While the program is intensive in nature, the time required on campus will not necessitate relocation or require students to leave their current leadership context. This is accomplished through a blended delivery model, combining classroom engagement with online student/professor interaction. A Cohort Community of Learners The Master of Arts in Ministry is a cohort-based program. Students will enter the program with a group of no more than 18 students. This cohort follows a prescribed sequence of courses together. Because cohort learning involves a group of students who start and finish their degree together, students experience a number of educational advantages. Cohort learning, combined in a blended manner with both face-to-face and internet-enhanced learning, offers one of the most effective learning opportunities available to the graduate student. Genuine, rich, and deep relationships will be developed through the course of the program as students support and serve each other in the quest for knowledge. Internet-Enhanced Learning This program combines faculty-mediated online interaction with face-to-face seminar participation. This model enables students to benefit from a range of educational delivery systems while maintaining the highest standards of academic quality. Students participate in online discussions and other learning activities led by both the professor and fellow students. On-campus interactions involve open dialogue in face-to-face seminar sessions led by nationally renowned and published faculty members. Program schedule is available online at Program Outcomes The MAM equips students for ministry in the church and society by developing: A foundational knowledge of the narrative, content and interpretation of the Bible for the purposes of spiritual formation and the development of a biblical worldview A biblical philosophy of ministry and leadership applicable to contemporary culture The character and competencies necessary to be an authentic servant leader The knowledge and skill sets necessary to lead individuals, teams, and organizations The skill sets necessary for assessing organizational health and strategizing plans for development The learning and research skills necessary for maintaining lifelong education The knowledge and skill sets appropriate for the selected concentration 4

But perhaps the biggest impact LBC made was helping me discover who I really was as a person and as a believer, and where God was calling me in ministry. It was through the program that I realized my passion for family ministry and saw how I could best use my gifts and abilities to strengthen families. I love what I do as a speaker and writer and found my mission in life because of my time at LBC. Scott Phillips, Director of Church Partnerships House on the Rock Family Ministries, Lancaster, PA 7

I was looking for an opportunity to be spiritually refreshed as well as prepared for a new season of ministry I was not disappointed. The mixture of outstanding faculty with real life ministry experience and other students from different generations who are currently serving in a variety of ministry settings created a broad perspective of challenging issues and a rich learning environment.

It is hard to put into words how deeply attending Lancaster Bible College affected my life. I learned a ton of important information about ministry practices and resources that aided in the work that I do each day. More importantly, though, the staff and faculty at LBC challenged me to not just learn the necessary material, but to grow in my walk with the Lord and as a minister in His service. They felt that it wasn t enough to be well informed; I needed to be well formed. Because of this experience, I am now not only better at my job but also a better person.
