The Master of Arts in Pastoral Ministry (MAPM) 

The Master of Arts in Pastoral Ministry (MAPM) degree is specifically designed for experienced pastors whose ministerial functions and employment responsibilities make it impossible to engage in an extended study program at the Seminary. In 2021 the MAPM program began accepting tuition-paying lay people who want to prepare for ministry or want to be more effective in their role as a leader in their local congregation.
