The Master of Arts in Family Ministry program teaches students how to connect with people and explores the dynamics and foundations of today's family systems. Students will examine human sexuality, research ethical and moral living, develop crisis intervention skills, and learn the fundamentals of effective counseling. As they explore the facets of counseling, students will build reflective listening and responding skills, explore the ethics and structure of pastoral counseling, as well as examine the different types that they may be faced with as a leader: pre-maritial, marriage, grief, depression, and crisis situations. Students will also explore their own relationship with God and the health of their spiritual life and identify areas for continued growth and reflection.
