Throughout the world, there is an increasing need for theologically-informed leaders who have an understanding of the social sciences, together with the management skills and self-understanding to contribute to church leadership in an increasingly diverse and pluralistic world.

This online masters programme will appeal to students seeking to combine effective leadership with the prolonged reflection on Christian theology in church, faith-based and non-profit environments around the globe.

The unique syllabus integrates the study of leadership and management skills with biblical interpretation and Christian thinking. The programme will help you develop both academic and practical knowledge and abilities to become a more effective leader within the church or Christian-based organisations. You might also be seeking more wisdom as a Christian and a leader in more secular environments.

As you study, you’ll learn to meet the challenges associated with contemporary, cross-cultural Christian communities, as you acquire new cultural perspectives and expand your global professional network.
