MA Pastoral Counseling and Church Ministry

Master of Arts in Pastoral Counseling — Discipleship and Church Ministry

Liberty University Baptist Theological Seminary’s online Master of Arts in Pastoral Counseling — Discipleship and Church Ministry program prepares students to serve in the local church and other ministry settings as a non-licensed counselor. Courses explore small group ministries, family discipleship, and church administration, as well as how to lead a healthy church.

Graduates from this program are prepared to serve in a number of positions, both in the church and with other Christian ministries. This degree may assist students seeking professional licensure; however, it does not meet all licensure requirements.
