Being on the leadership team of many churches today requires both theological education and business acumen. Ministers must understand how the church fits into the broader community and how to address complex business challenges. The Master of Divinity (M.Div.)/Master of Business Administration (MBA) joint degree at PBA will expand your capacity for serving as an executive or administrative minister in a church or parachurch ministry.
The School of Ministry is all about equipping. We equip passionate young people with the earthly tools and spiritual perspective needed to create positive change in the world guided by the Word of God. We promise a connected, engaging and fulfilling learning experience that will equip you to use your gifts for His Glory. Our programs prepare students through expert instruction in Bible, theology, history and real-world ministry skills.
