God has always given leaders words of wisdom to guide God’s people. Through these words God can move the hearts and hands of his children.

But preachers are not simply mouth pieces; they are leaders who cast the vision of God’s work in the world. They preach, teach, lead and counsel – pointing individuals and the entire congregation to greater intimacy with God and service in the kingdom.

Because of the unique calling of ministers, their training at Harding School of Theology involves deep exploration of God’s Word, and intense development of ministry leadership skills. This exploration and skill development is best focused in the Master of Divinity degree.
