Master of Divinity - Chaplaincy (72 Credit Hours)
Liberty University’s Master of Divinity degree program, with a cognate in Chaplaincy, prepares you to become a military chaplain or servant leader. The M.Div. program trains students to be wise, faithful stewards of the gospel, and develop specific ministry skills, strategies, and Christian character traits pertinent for successful ministry in an institutional chaplaincy setting. This program examines the theological and cultural issues relevant for formal and informal chaplaincy positions.
Observe the similarities and differences among the various types of chaplaincies, with specific focus given towards ministry in religiously pluralistic, multicultural, and multi-staff environments. Settings for this service may include military, correctional institutions, eldercare facilities, emergency response arenas, hospitals and industrial settings.
The military has numerous chaplain positions that go unfilled each year, and the need for Christians who are passionate about ministry and compelled by duty to their country is greater than ever. Military chaplains are commissioned military officers, serving in Active Duty or the Reserves.
Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary is proud to train those called by God into military service and offers military chaplaincy students the opportunity to receive endorsement through Liberty Baptist Fellowship.
