Huntington, Ind.—The Huntington University Graduate School of Christian Ministries announces its 2006 early summer semester classes. The Graduate School offers classes toward the completion of five Master of Arts degrees: Pastoral Ministries, Discipling Ministries, Youth Ministries, Youth Ministry Leadership, and Counseling Ministries. The Diploma in Pastoral Ministries is available for those who have not completed a bachelor’s degree. Classes also may be taken for continuing education credits.
The graduate school program is designed for all those interested in developing their ministry skills. This includes men and women who are transitioning to ministry from a secular career and those who are presently serving as ministry staff or volunteers and would like to earn a master’s degree or take specific classes of interest. Classes at the Graduate School of Christian Ministries are intended for people who want to further their education and ministry training without leaving their present ministry or work positions.
Each course is offered in a non-traditional format, typically meeting one Thursday and Friday each month for three months. The block format is designed to be worker-friendly and to allow for an intensive time of interaction as students and professors discuss ministry ideas and issues.
Classes offered for the 2006 early summer semester, starting Monday, April 3, 2006, include Strategies of Evangelism, Ministry Assessment, Principles of Leadership, Counseling Through Groups, Family Centered Church Programming, Building Strong Families, Theological Foundations and Equipping Strategies.
Senior adults, 55 years and older, may take classes for the reduced price of $130 per class.
