Liberty University Baptist Theological Seminary’s Master of Arts in Christian Ministry (M.A.C.M.) program is designed to meet the growing need of ministry leaders in churches across the country seeking specialized training in the area of discipleship, leadership, and ministry. Courses provide students with a strong understanding of biblical leadership principles and strategies specific to small group settings to train up disciples within their local churches. This program is well-suited for associate pastors, discipleship pastors, small group pastors, and pastors of Christian education.

Most of the degrees at LBTS are offered in both residential and online formats, but the M.A.C.M. is also offered in  a unique and highly convenient format designed for those who want residential classes, but cannot go to school during normal classroom hours.
