Divinity is the best all-around program for those interested in vocational ministry.

Additionally, students have the opportunity to explore, through elective courses, the fields of Christian Counseling, Christian Leadership, or Intercultural Studies.
It depends entirely upon your degree-level. For Associate of Arts students, Greek is optional. For Bachelor of Arts students, three credit hours of Greek are mandatory. For Master of Divinity students, it depends on your Track. M.Div. students in a Biblical Studies Track will need to take six hours of Biblical Language coursework and six hours of Exegetical coursework.
If you already have a Bachelor’s Degree, and are looking to become a Military Chaplain, then our M.Div. is the logical next step for you. If you do not yet have a Bachelor’s Degree, you’ll need to complete one before moving-on to an M.Div.
Absolutely! A great first place to start would be our Associate of Arts in Divinity.

Like most of today’s college students, Andre leads a busy life. Balancing family, work, and serving at his local church is a tough act, but he sensed the need to sharpen his leadership for effective Kingdom impact.
“The divinity program is designed to challenge the student’s current perception of the world through sound biblical truths. I appreciate this the most because it opened my mind as well as my heart.”
Jesus chose twelve leaders who were from differing backgrounds. Many religious leaders in that time would have overlooked them. Through teaching and training, He prepared them to lead a movement that changed the world. Whatever your call may be, training at Manna U can help you engage in this kind of transformational leadership.
