    For those interested in a MA/Ministry degree via distance education...

    Grace Theological Seminary offers a 32hr Masters of Ministry degree via distance learning (audio, video, internet, etc). Two week long modules on campus are required (sort of standard). The two on campus courses are: Counseling in the local church and Leadership in the local church. The other courses are:

    Systematic Theology I and II
    Hermeneutics
    Understanding the Old Testament
    Survey of Church History
    Philosophy of Ministry
    Gospels/Life of Christ
    Two on campus courses
    Elective

    This "program was designed to meet the needs of students wanting to receive a master's level education but challenged by the inability to come to Grace Seminary for training...While Grace SEminary believes that the optimum training for the senior pastorate is the Master of Divinity degree, the Master of Ministry does yield a better prepared servant for the local church" (from their MA Brochure).

    Visit Grace Theological Seminary website.

    Grace is fully accredited.

    I do not attend Grace, but after reading through their catalog (and word of mouth) I think this may be a good program for those interested.

    In Christ,
    Martin.

    I want to know if you think about this degree, is a good help for me to start for a seminary degree. And do you think all of these credits will be accepted in a accredited MDiv degree (other than Grace Theological Seminary) ...\


    I saw many interventions from you, I don't know if you know about BD from Europe is the same as MDiv form USA.

    And I want to ask you if there are some scholarships from overseas students with Liberty Theological Seminary? I understand you are student with Liberty.

    I'm form Eastern Europe, but I'll work from next week for a minimum one year in Manchester, UK.

    The courses listed are basic undergraduate courses for any decent Christian college.

    I know a man who interviewed there for a faculty position and was quite impressed.

    I agree, those courses are similar to those that I took as underdraduate in new Orleans seminary. It is true that some seminaries will do the basic courses again in the master's program but go much deeper. Seems like a good school to me.

    I want to start to work for a degree (I studied in the past many individual courses with different seminaries or missions from Eastern Europe).
    Is hard to compare european system with american system. I want to know if a BD from Uk is the same with MDiv or with BA.

    Unfortunetly majority of the schools from Europe are liberal, and I look for a strong evangelical school who belief in inerancy of the Scripture.
    And american schools are very expensive ..

    In answer to your question, yes an M.Div. is the equivalent of a 5/6 year BD.

    Thank you for your answer, but i'm still confusing a little bit, because, In UK, conditions for aplying to BD is high school and not a bachelor, I have a bachelor degree, but I start to work for a BD in UK, and i want to know exactly if i want to continue my studies in USA, where I'm eligible. In the same school (Spurgeon's College, London) they have a MTh (which will be 1 year full time) before a PhD.

    Do you really think it will be possible to continue my studies in ThM in USA after my BD in UK?
