The Master of Arts in Family Ministry degree is designed to integrate Christian counseling and the spirituality of soul care. In the MAFM program, students are prepared for ministry by utilizing a holistic approach to personal wholeness (spiritual, emotional, social, and physical) as they interact honestly and personally with the biblical text. The program is designed to equip men and women for a variety of ministry opportunities: (1) pastoral counseling and chaplaincy ministry; (2) staff ministries-such as youth, children, adults, and small groups; (3) Christian ministry contexts; or (4) lay ministry. The MAFM is also appropriate for persons who are already ordained and seek further professional and personal enrichment. The MAFM degree does not qualify the graduate for licensure by the state of Ohio.
