Master of Arts in Biblical Theology
The Master of Arts in Biblical Theology is designed for ministers and laypersons who want to improve their academic understanding of Scripture for personal fulfillment, increased effectiveness in vocational ministry, or as a preparation for further graduate study. Upon completing this program, the graduate will be able to analyze, interpret, and explain the meaning of Scripture; engage major themes within biblical scholarship from a Pentecostal/Renewalist perspective; conduct meaningful academic research in biblical studies; and produce an academic thesis that makes a distinctive contribution and follows the conventions of biblical scholarship. This is a fully accredited program through our partnership school North Central University.
All of Jakes Divinity School students will have face-to-face residency opportunities twice a year. The first is during the International Leadership Summit each spring of a given degree program. Students will arrive on site of the summit the Sunday evening prior and remain for a week until the end of the summit. The second residency will likely take place in Dallas, TX, at Jakes Divinity School in the fall of each year.
