Ministry and Leadership Programs

C. Peter Wagner Ministry Programs

Education Programs


Our ministry and leadership programs exist to ignite world changers in their calling to transform culture and impact lives. They provide training in leadership, compassionate ministry, and biblical studies. Students are instructed by qualified faculty who are experienced in Christian ministry as apostolic leaders, missionaries, pastoral caregivers, and teachers.

Accredited Degree Programs

  • Bachelor of Arts in Christian Ministry Completion Program – provides a personal foundation for ministry. Through the examination of biblical, historical, and cultural backgrounds and training in interpersonal skills, students are encouraged to use prior learning and current experience to bring kingdom values to those within their call to ministry. The program’s emphasis on the student’s call to ministry includes church, work, family, community, and culture.
  • Master of Arts in Practical Ministry 2 Emphases– provides the student with a practical approach to the application of Scripture and theology across various ministry disciplines. There are two possible tracks, one for study and teaching, and the other for the work of pastoral care or chaplaincy.
  • Master of Divinity– provides professional and theological graduate training designed to equip the participant for the continued study, application, and ministering of God’s Word. The curriculum concentrates on the biblical basis for ministry practices, allowing for ministry formation in concert with the participant’s home church beliefs, and making room for the Holy Spirit to teach and minister in the participant’s life. Additional emphasis is placed on the knowledge and skills necessary to lead, teach, or minister in a church or parachurch setting.
  • Doctor of Ministry – a practice-oriented professional degree for pastors and ministry leaders that cultivates a “way of being” for spiritual formation. The program emphasizes relational ministry development. It is designed to facilitate spiritual renewal and to stimulate increasingly effective ministry in the Church and contemporary world.


In 2020, Shiloh University began working with Wagner University to create additional accredited programs that merge practical equipping with academic scholarship to produce scholar-practitioners. These three programs situate the teachings of C. Peter Wagner and others into the progressive Christian stream of restoration and reformation. The ultimate goal is to equip Christ-centered leaders for evangelism, spiritual growth, and the transformation of culture.

Accredited Degree Programs

  • Masters in Apostolic Leadership – prepares students for competent apostolic leadership in their cultural sphere of influence. The program is designed to give students a pragmatic biblical and theological foundation for the reemergence of apostles and prophets, the establishment of the five-fold ministry, and the importance of the seven-mountain mandate in advancing the Kingdom of God. The program engages students in the use of biblically-based tools such as healing, deliverance, and spiritual warfare. The program also provides a practical foundation in such areas as church planting, missiology, church and nonprofit law, and administration.

  • Masters in Healing and Spiritual Care – a practical and theologically grounded program for anyone desiring to expand their healing ministry training. In this practical hands-on program, students will gain a thorough foundation of applied theology, with scriptural, historical, and present-day contexts for effective Christian holistic healing. The program covers four aspects of biblical healing, physical healing, deliverance ministry, inner healing, and pastoral counseling.

  • Masters in Women’s Leadership – designed by women for women at all levels of leadership: those who are ready to assume leadership, those who are relatively new to leadership, and those who are long-serving leaders. Among its goals are to enable and mobilize women around the globe to advance Christ’s Kingdom across the seven mountains of society.



Our education programs exist to equip Christian educators with skills and abilities that will make them effective in transforming lives and culture. These skills are applicable for professional teachers and administrators, church school workers, corporate trainers, and those who are committed to creating relevant learning experiences.
