Concordia's accelerated ministry degree program is designed for students who are thinking long-term in their ministry education. In other words, if you desire to go on to receive a seminary-level graduate education, you can do that here at the Center for Church Leadership.
Reduce the amount of time and costs to receive a graduate-level degree. How is this possible? With the help of a generous grant from the Kern Family Foundation, Concordia University has developed a 4+1 program. You will receive in a total of five years of education, a Bachelor of Science in Theological Studies: Ministry Leadership and a Master of Arts in Church Leadership.
The 4+1 program will not only prepare you to enter the church to serve in the areas of children, youth, young adults, it will also give you the knowledge and skills to one day, if you desire, to step into a senior-level leadership position within the church.
