LPTS Degree Programs

The Master of Divinity (M.Div.)is the first theological degree. Students are educated in Bible, theology, history, and a variety of other disciplines. They learn how to preach and teach competently in the church, how to counsel, and how to help people in situations of need. The M.Div. affords students a chance to apprentice themselves within the Christian community and to gain knowledge and skills to enable ministry. In applying themselves thoroughly to the study, students can help clarify their call to ministry and locate areas of special talent. The Master of Arts in Religion offers opportunities to learn and grow in service to the church. Concentration can be in either Bible or Religious Thought. The Program requires two years of study. The Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) Degree Program frames marriage and family therapy as a professional expression of the church"s ministry of pastoral care and counseling. Individuals trained in the MFT Program gain theoretical and practical tools to work as comprehensive mental health providers with a wide variety of problems, circumstances, and relational constellations framed by a theologically integrated systemic, relational and contextual understanding of human life. The Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) degree is a professional credential offered to persons who are already engaged in ministry and who wish to develop excellence in ministerial practice. The D.Min. is not a research degree intended to prepare candidates for academic careers. Its major focus is the ministry in which the candidate is engaged or some other form of ministry, possible one to which the candidate intends to move.
