Master of Divinity

Filadelfia Bible College’s Master of Divinity program is designed to prepare the whole church for the whole world with the whole Gospel. The course is planned to emphasise, equipping ordinary people whole-life formation theologically competent leadership in established ministry or any vocation. In addition to firm biblical scholarship, the program also includes a practicum that nurtures students’ spiritual, personal, and vocational formation. Further, the courses are rooted in contextual issues; it will help students integrate and practically apply their studies with new levels of mentoring and small group support.

The programme is developed with a broad educational component, and the curriculum enables students to formulate on in-depth biblical, theological, historical and missiological subjects. These subjects  are practically relevant for all ministry and mission contexts, without undermining our strong evangelical and charismatic ethos.

Why Master of Divinity?

The Master of Divinity program prepares men and women for mission and ministry within the Church of Jesus Christ – the people of God.

With this vision in mind, the curriculum intends to instruct students in the study of theology in its broadest sense, so that each may grow in the knowledge of God, discover and develop one’s God-given gifts and become more effective members of the body of Christ.

This involves a deep understanding of God and God’s world through academic discipline, personal spiritual growth and maturity, and gaining relevant skills that will enable students to use their theological insights effectively in practical Christian ministry.
