Central’s innovative online Master of Divinity degree program is uniquely designed to help you craft a ministry that is tuned to your vocational or entrepreneurial goals, either as full-time clergy or in your chosen profession or walk in life. It will equip you with a new, empowering vision of ministry so that you can become a transformative agent in the emerging global Christian community. Students in the Master of Divinity online program will encounter a diverse community of learners, enriching online discussions, and content that challenges persons to think more deeply about their faith.
MDiv students prepare for jobs as Chaplains, Non-profits leaders, and Ministers. The degree is generally the preferred educational credential for chaplaincy certification, required by most branches of the military to service as a chaplain, and necessary for ordination in many church denominations.
Central’s online MDiv weaves the signature theological “pillars” of formation, interpretation, contextualization and performance with “threads” of learning to bring contemporary relevance to every course. “Threads” include subjects like racial diversity, cross cultural understanding, social justice, environmental theology, sexual identity, religious pluralism, creative expression and more. At Central we value:
Central’s vision is to be a leading seminary offering innovative theological education and effective ministry formation in a global context. We have a long history and yet find ourselves moving in many new and exciting ways as the Spirit continually leads us into the future. With over 400 students in a variety of educational programs, Central is exploring new ways to prepare those God is calling to special service in our world today.
