POSTGRADUATE
COURSE - MA

The Church in the West is undergoing profound change as it adjusts to a new context for mission. Many leaders in churches and faith-based organisations have been trained in the skills they need to manage the internal life of a church or organisation. Missional leadership implies leading the church in external mission activity beyond the church community, in new and innovative ways for effective engagement with contemporary culture.

Programme Aims
This programme aims to equip Christian leaders to develop effective approaches to missional practice and leadership in post-Christendom societies.
 

How the Course Works
The MA is designed to advance students’ knowledge and critical understanding of contemporary issues in mission, drawing on missiology, sociology, psychology, leadership studies, theology and biblical studies.

Taught module assessments and the dissertation offer students opportunities to develop their particular interests in these fields, and to acquire the skills of independent study and research in a discipline of their choice.
 

Who the Course is for?
The programme is aimed at a wide range of students who are in Christian ministry within churches, mission agencies or community projects.
 

Course Structure
The MA is a part-time programme delivered over three years, with three potential entry points each year – September, January, or June.
