The Master of Divinity in Great Commission Studies is designed for those called to serve in local church ministry as well as cross-cultural mission contexts. This degree option builds upon the foundation of the core curriculum to provide the greatest flexibility with respect to free elective courses available in a Master of Divinity program at Southern Seminary.
IMB president Paul Chitwood knows missions. Even more, he knows that theological training is non-negotiable for men and women called to the mission field. And from his M.Div. (’95) and Ph.D. (’01) from the school, he knows Southern Seminary can prepare you for a life of missions work better than anyone.
