The MDIV is a 75 hour program that provides high quality, accessible, and economical ministerial training for pastors involved in local church ministry. Courses take place in online, blended, and on-site formats. To enroll in the degree, a person must have earned a bachelor's degree and be officially engaged in ministry at least 20 hours a week and connected with a worshiping body of Christian believers with whom they can successfully complete course assignments relating to the local church.
