I. ACADEMIC LEARNING

Interested students can begin the application process here!             

Together in partnership, Wheaton College and the Mosaix Global Network offer an M.A. in Ministry Leadership to graduate students seeking to serve, establish or develop healthy multiethnic, biblically just, and financially sustainable churches and organizations for the sake of the gospel in an increasingly diverse society. Through this advanced degree, students receive Christ-centered, academically challenging, and onsite training from credible educators and proven practitioners to equip them for effective local church leadership and redemptive community engagement in the 21st century.

As part of a Mosaix Cohort, fifteen to twenty-two (15-22) graduate students receive a significant tuition discount (25%), and journey together as a group for the entire length of the program. As part of the 42 hour (11 classes) degree, students take 16 hours (4 classes) from Mosaix Institute instructors focused on theological understanding, core commitments, common challenges, movements and models, personal and collective development, and sustainable economics, as these relate to multiethnic local church and organizational ministry leadership. The unique degree features both online and onsite instruction; ongoing connection with peers and professors through a dedicated social media account; contextual coaching for those already in ministry, and more.
