M.Div. Chaplaincy

The Master of Divinity Chaplaincy program specifically prepares men and women to be effective chaplains in military, healthcare, or prison contexts. The MDiv as a whole equips students with a comprehensive understanding of Scripture, a solid grounding in theology, biblical study tools, and key practical ministry skills. Students will graduate from the program with the ability to interpret Scripture, contextualize the gospel, and shepherd their community.
