The Master of Ministry introduces graduate students to the sources and content of the Christian story and message, and provides training that emphasizes application of this story and message in the world. The course requires specialisation in disciplines wherein knowledge of God is applied to guide Christian practice in at least two areas in the field of Ministry & Practice.
This degree is open to those who have graduated with or qualified for (at least) a bachelor degree or equivalent qualification in a non-theological discipline from an Australian university or other approved higher education provider, or who have successfully completed a course of study which is deemed equivalent.
The Master of Ministry introduces students, in a systematic manner, to the classical discipline of theology, as a means of both preparing men and women for communicating Christian knowledge as well as laying the foundation for advanced degrees in theology and ministry.
The Master of Ministry has been devised to train men and women for ministry in areas of pastoral practice. Morling is the accrediting college for Baptist ministers in NSW and ACT, and the Master of Ministry is recommended for those who wish to become an accredited Baptist Pastor.
