Online Education Customized to You
Desire theological education but find yourself unable to leave your current ministry context? OnlineYou is a rigorous, research-based program of study built from the ground up and specifically tailored for online students engaged in ministry today.
OnlineYou doesn’t just equip students with knowledge, but was designed by scholars in the field to provide students with skills for lifelong Biblical learning and application. At the forefront of technology, Midwestern uses only the most up-to-date version of Blackboard as our delivery system, and our online team is always developing new ways to enhance your learning experience.
Six Terms Begin Each Year
With six terms each year, you are never more than a few weeks away from starting your degree. Online courses are offered in eight-week terms with full loads offered in the Spring, Summer, and Fall.
Offered by Midwestern a few times a year, symposiums allow students to come to campus and engage in a group meeting with classmates and professors.
Students participate in ministry with a local field supervisor. A Midwestern course instructor provides structure for the practicum while your field supervisor walks with you through hands-on assignments in your ministry context.
Students have the opportunity to enhance the online experience with face-to-face learning. Come to Kansas City and meet with your professor 1-on-1 or with a small group.
Strategic, contextualized assignments allow students engaged in ministry to apply information learned in class while implementing skills used in day-to-day ministry. On certain assignments, students can choose to apply class material as a pastor, teacher, or scholar would.
Degree Programs Offered
This 45 hour degree provides a solid foundation of theological studies designed to equip a person for effective and growing ministry. The MTS provides training in the same foundational areas of ministry as the M.Div., but takes less time.
The M.Div. is the basic seminary degree for college graduates. It is the appropriate first degree for those anticipating ordination to ministry. This degree is perfect for those who anticipate serving as pastors, evangelists, associate pastors, missionaries, or in other ministries that emphasize expository preaching or teaching of the Word of God.
If you have a high school diploma and are called to ministry, we are your first step toward a complete theological education. Our courses will prepare you for a lifetime of effective ministry. Future and current pastors, Christian educators, missionary candidates, and ministry staff workers will find courses of study designed to equip them for ministry.
