• MASTER OF ARTS IN BIBLICAL EXPOSITION

    The Master of Arts in Biblical Exposition (MABE) is designed to train men and women to serve their communities through the relevant preaching of God’s Word. Students will learn to prepare and deliver expository sermons that impact communities and transform lives. Throughout the program, students will develop the skills to assess their own unique ministry contexts and communicate effectively as change agents.

    Potential Career and Educational Paths

    The MABE would prepare students to serve in various capacities within the church or para-church settings in either professional positions or as lay leaders. The program allows students to develop new ministries in response to an identified need in their church or community. The program would be useful in developing students who are able to preach regularly in various ministry contexts.
