About the Course
The MMin Ministry is a professional Postgraduate Degree which provides an opportunity to engage in sustained reflection and research upon the practice of ministry. Designed for people who cannot take extended periods of study away from their ministry, this course seeks to address the rapidly changing contexts of Christian ministry taking a holistic approach to new challenges, theories and practices associated with modern day ministry.
This programme has been developed in such a way that students are encouraged to explore various theological traditions and disciplines, to further develop a range of practical skills and to develop habits of theological reflection which integrate theory with practice. This process of reflection and dialogue contributes to students’ personal and professional development as reflective practitioners, helping them to construct fresh perspectives on the tasks and opportunities facing those involved in the practice of ministry.
Students will develop and expand their range of theological knowledge, understanding and skills in ways that will inform their practice while supported by a variety of teaching approaches, delivered in a supportive learning environment. They will have the opportunity to explore and reflect critically upon theological studies with particular regard to the richness of Christian practice and expression drawing on a variety of theological and other academic disciplines and discourses in order to reflect critically and constructively on their practice.
Why choose Liverpool Hope?
The MMin Ministry adds value to first degrees by developing knowledge and skills involved in modern day ministry within Christian churches and organisations. Students with an interest in studying the challenges faced by modern day ministry, will find this degree challenging and stimulating. They will be able to draw on the wide areas of academic scholarship and expertise brought to the course by well-published academics and experienced theologians. Students will confidently be able to evaluate critically current research in aspects of Christian ministry such as mission, chaplaincy, formation, leadership and preaching and articulately apply that knowledge with ministerial practice.
The MMin Ministry is designed to prepare reflective and competent professionals for positions of leadership in Christian ministry. The programme strives to discover and nurture sound scholarship, meaningful research and the interdependence of theory and practice. These skills can be applied to virtually any organisational setting, across the Roman Catholic, Anglican, Methodist and Orthodox churches both in the UK and overseas.
This programme is an academic master’s degree, which is suited to students who may wish to undertake further study and progress to the Doctorate in Ministry (D.Min).
A First Class or Upper Second Class Honours Degree in any relevant discipline. Applications from students who do not hold a 1st or 2:1 Honours Degree (or equivalent) may be asked to demonstrate potential to achieve a Masters award via a sample of academic writing and interview before an offer is made.
