TRANSFORMATIONAL

Carey's M.Div. program is designed based on the conviction that preparation for ministry is most effective when located within the local church.

Image

COMMUNITY

Students must remain rooted in their primary community during the MDiv program so that they will continue to grow and lean in their own place of life and ministry.

Image

PRACTICAL

M.Div preparation is not disruptive to continuing ministry commitments. In fact, learning is enhanced by means of individualized contextualization as each student integrates their course of study with their particular ministry setting.
