Preparation for Pastoral Ministry

Students, who are not planning on an elder (preaching) ordination but who desire to prepare for leading or assisting in the disci- pleship and educational programs of a local church, should consider the Master of Arts in Religious Education with a concentration in church ministries.

Preparation for Missions

Individuals who are preparing for Christian service in the world mission of the church or inIntercultural ministries, and who antici- pate ordination, should take the Master of Divinity and choose electives in the area of Intercultural Studies.

Such a student should consult with the Intercultural Studies Program Director for a sequence of appropriate courses. At least 10 courses or 30 units are recommended for students who are anticipating service in the world mission or in Intercultural ministries in the Master of Divinity. For those wishing to pursue doctoral work in Intercultural Studies, a minimum of 10 courses or 30 units are required. These courses should be carefully chosen with the guidance of the Intercultural Studies Program Director in order to fulfill expected doctoral pre-requisites.

For students who are already ordained, or who do not anticipate ordination, there are three other programs at APNTS that help pre- pare persons called to Intercultural ministries:

»Graduate Diploma in Intercultural Studies. The Graduate Diploma would be appropriate for students who have already earned a Master of Divinity, or who have a shortened period of time in which to prepare for Intercultural min- istries. The Graduate Diploma may be completed in one year at APNTS.

»Master of Arts in Christian

Communication, with concentration in Intercultural Studies. This degree allows students to specialize in the communication of the gospel in various ways Interculturally. This degree re-

quires a thesis, 550 on the TOEFL, and Intercultural Internship I-II. The program can be completed in two years.

»Master of Science in Theology, with concentration in Intercultural Studies. This program can be complet- ed in two years. For those who have completed the Master of Divinity, this degree can be completed in one further year of study, and requires a thesis, 550 on the TOEFL, and Intercultural Internship I-II.

Preparation for Early Childhood Ministry

Individuals who are called to teaching in or leading local church-sponsored pre-schools may profitably enroll in the Master of Arts in Religious Education program.

Preparation for College Teaching

Students anticipating teaching in Bible or other colleges are urged to prepare for such through the wide range of courses offered in the Master of Divinity curriculum, followed by specialization in the Master of Science in Theology program, the Master of Arts in Religious Education with the teaching ministry or educational leadership concentrations and/

or through the Master of Theology and Doctor of Philosophy program offered through the Asia Graduate School of Theology. Students may especially prepare through taking the M.A.R.E Graduate Certificate in either Teaching Ministry or Educational Leadership.

Preparation for Christian School Ministry

Individuals whose goal is to teach in or administer Christian schools may profit- ably enroll in the Master of Arts in Religious Education program. The teaching ministries, curriculum and instruction, or the educational leadership concentrations would be suitable.

These programs aim to train men and women for ministry who either do not have the opportunity or need to pursue the normal seminary degrees of M.Div., M.A., or M.S.T.

These certificates and diplomas focus upon preparing lay leadership for the church, but some full-time church workers may find this course appropriate for their needs. A bach- elor’s degree from a recognized or approved institution is required for entrance. The mini- mum pre-seminary studies required for M.Div.

and M.A. and M.S.T. students, however, are not required. A candidate for the diploma must complete 24 hours. At least 21 hours in the diploma program must be taken either at APNTS or through one of its extension programs.

The DIPLOMAS are offered in six areas:

Christian Education, Pastoral Ministries, Theological Studies, Christian Ministries, Intercultural Studies, and Christian Communication. Normally, students can complete a Graduate Diploma in one year of full-time study at APNTS. Credits earned for the Diploma can be transferred into one of the degree programs providing that pre-seminary requirements are met and that the Diploma is surrendered before the granting of the degree.

(5)

33

Normally a minimum of two years is required for the completion of the course leading to this degree. A candidate must complete a total of 48 hours, of which 24 hours must be taken in residence. The M.A.R.E. is divided into seven concentrations: Church Ministries, Curriculum and Instruction, Educational Leadership, Holistic Child Development, Language Teaching Ministries, Teaching Ministries, and a General track. Our M.A.R.E. concentrations are designed to allow a breadth of ministry options. The learners may customize the program according to their calling while at the same time develop a depth of understanding in their chosen concen- tration. The chosen concentration should prepare the student for his or her thesis research as well as future ministry.

The Church Ministries concentration is appro- priate for those called to Christian disciple- ship ministries in local congregations, who are not pursuing pastoral ordination.

The Curriculum and Instruction concentration equips graduates to be curriculum specialists in Christian schools and Bible colleges as well as the local church. It is designed especially for those whose desire is to 1) supervise or 2) write and produce Christian curricular materi- als.

The Educational Leadership concentration prepares leaders to administer educational institutions at any level from preschools, Christian elementary and high schools, to Bible colleges or beyond.

Master of Arts in Religious Education

The Holistic Child Development (HCD) con- centration qualifies graduates to teach at the undergraduate level of instruction in HCD, to act as advocates, spokes-persons, leaders, managers, and facilitators ministering with and through children both inside and outside the church. It is intended for:

1. church leaders who believe in the impor- tance of children and their contributions both in the local context and the global scheme, and

2. those who are advocates and practition- ers on behalf of children at risk.

The Language Teaching Ministry concentra- tion validates the graduate’s preparation to teach language, frequently English, to speak-

(6)

34

ers of other languages. This ministry to the perceived need brings mission opportunities that otherwise may not be available for local churches and in Intercultural missions.

The Teaching Ministry concentration prepares graduates with educational expertise for a va- riety of options. It is intended for those who:

1. plan to teach in any level of church schools,

2. may teach in public schools, or

3. are considering college teaching in fields other than Christian Education (those students would take this concentration as electives or a second course beyond the Master of Divinity course).

The General Course provides flexibility and customizability of the M.A.R.E. program for those students whose educational and research goals are not met by any of the con- centrations listed above. In coordination with the M.A.R.E. program director, the student may design a program with five Christian edu- cation courses and a practicum or supervised ministry that will prepare the graduate for his or her future ministry.

Goals and Objectives

In addition to the overall mission and objec- tives of the Seminary, the master’s degree program in religious education is intended to provide resources for and a climate in which students may:

Appropriate an understanding of the Word of God, the heritage of the faith, the doctrines of the church, and the fellowship of believers sufficient to enable them to keep a personal commitment to God and the church for a redemptive and nurturing ministry.

Develop a philosophy of Christian ministry;

learn to understand the complexities of and exhibit a capacity and desire for growth in the context of ministry; and demonstrate a spirit of openness, cooperativeness, and caring in ministry.

Cultivate competencies necessary for

»the skillful performance of age-level ministries;

»educating laity for outreach and nurtur- ing ministries;

»facilitating harmonious working rela- tions with staff and congregation;

»functioning competently, profession- ally, and responsibly in the light of both sound theological understanding and educational theory; and

»teaching leaders and teachers to provide direction for and modeling of the education program of the church or institution being served.

Prerequisites for entry into the M.A.R.E. Program

The Master of Arts in Religious Education pro- gram is built upon the student’s background in Christian education or secular education.

All students entering the program will have had at least nine hours in either Christian education or education. If any of these have not been taken at the undergraduate level they must be taken at the graduate level in the student’s first semester, but will not count toward the degree. The pre-Seminary prereq- uisites apply with the exception of the New Testament Greek.

Holistic Child Development

Program Mission

To equip students with the gifts, skills, and commitment to be child advocates, teach- ers, and practitioners, caring holistically for children inside and outside the church.

Program Vision

In response to God’s heart for children, APNTS HCD graduates will be leaders, teach- ers, advocates and practitioners on behalf of needy children, understanding the biblical and strategic significance of children and having the ethos and mindset for holistic ministries to and with children.

Program Values

The program will function on the following values:

• Christ-centered education. Program par- ticipants are always led to the realization that in ministering with children, Jesus Christ reigns supreme and that every child will be led to a personal relationship of Jesus.

• Holistic approach to ministering to “the least of these” (Mark 9:37). A holistic approach treats the physical, emotional, and social needs of children as well as

the spiritual. The Bible says, “So Jesus grew both in height and in wisdom, and he was loved by God and by all who knew him,” (Luke 2:52, NLT). The curricu- lum will take into consideration various aspects of child development for holistic ministry.

• Intentional and strategic intervention for children in crisis and at risk. Program participants will be challenged to engage Bible-based, professional and relevant interventions that would enable children to grow up in the fear and knowledge of the Lord so they, too, could minister to others including their families, friends, and others around them.

• Learning for life contexts. Classroom interactions are always culture sensitive and instruction, scholarly research, and major projects will always be geared towards various of areas of ministries with children.

• Developmental orientation. Attention will be given to development theories and processes within a biblical framework and their implications to ministry. This is intrinsically related to the concept of the individual worth of each child and the value of giving every child respect and consideration.

(13)

41

Program Objectives and Competencies

On completion of the MA-RE in HCD, stu- dents will:

• Create initiatives for ministering with chil- dren as felt needs are identified through research and experience (Missions, Practical Ministry)

• Holistically engage in teaching children at different levels of ministry with informed, relevant, and intentional strategies for growth and development (Personal Growth/Leadership)

• Identify the needs, characteristics, potential, developmental tasks of the child, and develop strategies to enable the child to have a living relationship with Christ in light of Scripture, culture, and theology (Anthropology/Theology/

Christian Education, Communication)

• Look closely at the internal, social, famil- ial, societal, psychological, and other fac- tors: which have direct or indirect impact on children at risk (Sociology)

• Develop a theoretical/conceptual frame- work/model/processes in working with children in crisis (Child Development/

Psychology)

The master’s program in Christian Communication is made possible through the International Communications Division of the Church of the Nazarene, which is providing funds for a Media Center to serve the Asia-Pacific Region of the Church of the Nazarene.

Prerequisites for Entry into the MACC Program

The Master of Arts in Christian Communica- tion is built upon the student’s background in some field related to communication. The pre- Seminary prerequisites apply with the excep- tion of the Biblical Hebrew and/or New Testa- ment Greek requirement.

It is further required that all students enter- ing the program present a major project in any form (printed, audio or visual, new media) of Christian communication. A thesis is required of all M.A.C.C. students and production con- centration students will complete thesis in pro- duction format.

Goals and Objectives

The program provides a foundational core of graduate-level courses in Christian com- munication so that graduates will be well equipped with traditional as well as advanced technological means so that students to be the media professionals, media-minded ministers, and missionaries to effectively communicate for communicating the gospel in the twenty- first century. The goal of MACC program is to educate professionally trained and culturally sensitive Christian communicators for the mis- sion of the church in Asia, Pacific and beyond.

Since the Bible and theology form the content to be communicated, these subjects are also required. Students will evidence expertise in one area of communication by developing a thesis (for media production concentration program, the thesis is in production format).

The Intercultural Communication concentra- tion is for those students intending to become missionaries or otherwise to be engaged in Intercultural ministries. It provides a balance of communication and missions courses.

Master of Divinity

A minimum of three years is required for the completion of the course leading to this degree.

A candidate must complete a total of 90 semester hours, of which the final 30 hours must be taken in residence.

Goals and Objectives

In addition to the overall mission and objec- tives of the Seminary, the Master of Divinity program is particularly a means of preparing individuals for the service of Christ in Christian ministry as pastors in local congregations in Asia and the Pacific. The Master of Divinity program is a means of intellectual, profession- al and spiritual preparation of the student for responsibilities in the nurture and outreach of the church as an effective servant leader. At the same time, it is a means for the practice of Christian stewardship and service in an at- mosphere of mutual respect and responsibility.

Furthermore, it is a means for the development of a strong self-image as a minister of the gos- pel.

Though the Master of Divinity is primarily in- tended for the preparation of pastoral leaders, some graduates may find themselves teach- ing in Bible or theological colleges. Master of Divinity students anticipating college teaching are urged to take six or nine hours in appropri-

ate Christian Education subjects. This may be accomplished through a wise choice of elec- tive subjects. The degree provides solid back- ground for teaching a wide variety of theologi- cal subjects, though graduates are urged to go on for further, more specialized education through the Master of Science in Theology or the Master of Theology, or beyond, if they in- tend to remain college teachers.

The Master of Divinity degree is approved to fulfill elder’s ordination requirements for those ministering in the Church of the Nazarene.

Prerequisites

To all theology courses, prerequisites are either three hours of undergraduate work in Systematic or Constructive theology, or Theological Foundations, which is offered at APNTS, and which may count as an unregu- lated elective.
