Beeson Divinity School strives to prepare God-called men and women for faithful ministry in the church of Jesus Christ. We believe that our M.Div. is the best degree for Christian ministry because of these convictions:
Beeson retains the evangelical conviction that Holy Scripture norms theology, life and ministry. Thus, students take courses in Old and New Testament Theology as well as four courses each in Greek and Hebrew.
Unique in theological education, Beeson teaches theology and church history together in an integrated four-course sequence. Students learn key doctrines such as Scripture, Christology, Pneumatology, justification, creation, and anthropology as they unfold and develop in the history of the Christian church.
We believe theological education is more than the transfer of information. It should result in transformation and ministry for the church in the world to the glory of God. Thus, students take required courses in spiritual formation, pastoral care and counseling, evangelism, missions and preaching as well as complete a cross-cultural ministry practicum and a year-long ministry practicum in a local church.
Students may take four courses in any of the three areas above to hone their preparation for ministry and complete the degree.
“When I was deciding where I would go for a theologically based education, the clear answer for me was Beeson.
“The program integrates community, mentorship and worship into their curriculum, which I feel is essential for spiritual growth.”
