The Master of Ministry degree is designed to prepare and equip senior and associate/assistant pastors, worship ministers, youth ministers, children’s ministers, Christian school administrators and bible teachers for the calling of life-giving, transformational ministry. The program is based on the biblical principle found in Romans chapter twelve that all of us are created to worship and that simply living and being for God is an act of worship. “And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him.” , NLT. Students who graduate from the Master of Ministry program will be equipped with a practical, meaningful approach to ministry, firmly built upon strong biblical, historical and theological foundations. Students will examine biblical hermeneutics and exegesis, church doctrines and creeds. Students will learn how worship can lead to spiritual formation. Students will be given hands on opportunities to explore music, the arts, and technology in ministry planning. Instead of simply being a conduit for information transferal, the purpose of the master’s program at The Kaleo Institute is life transformation. The Kaleo Institute will help you:

  • grow in knowledge and wisdom, leading to greater spiritual maturity as you examine God’s Word, the definitive guide to personal and corporate worship.
  • proclaim the holy Bible as the authoritative Word of God, His story told for all of creation.
  • develop meaningful, historically, biblically and theologically grounded ministry programs and corporate worship services and experiences.
  • lead Christ’s church with grace and courage, being a clear example of servant leadership.

The cliché “you need to know where you have come from to know where you are going” may well be the central theme of this course. By studying the history of Christian worship, and how it applies to today’s church, the student will be prepared for the future of church and para-church ministry.

In worship we proclaim, rehearse and celebrate God’s story. In this course the student will begin a formal examination of the science and laws of Biblical exegesis and interpretation. The principles, methods, and rules by which the meaning of Scripture may be ascertained are examined and applied.

It is no secret that the bible was originally written in Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic. A basic understanding of these original languages can add relevance and meaning to the proclamation of God’s Story (the Word).

Time is also spent briefly examining the Hebrew language.

This course is designed to assist students in thinking critically about effective worship design as well as music and other arts in worship. In light of the current dramatic changes and flux in worship practices throughout the world, it is more important than ever for worship leaders to establish biblical and theological grounding for their decisions related to worship renewal through music and the arts. In addition, this course will introduce students to fresh and creative ways to enhance the Christian community’s worship of God through the utilization of various art forms that are appropriate to one’s context.

MIN 620: Technology in Ministry 3 credit hours

The dictionary defines technology as “a manner of accomplishing a task especially using technical processes, methods, or knowledge.” In general usage we think of modern computers, cell phones, and social media. In this course we will first examine the impact that technology has had on the church, then we will look at practical hands on technologies that help accomplish the task of spiritual formation through corporate worship.
