If a student receives Lincoln Christian University application approval to enter the program, he or she can achieve the M.A. in General Ministries from Lincoln Christian University with specialization in a church planting practicum from Northwoods School of Ministry which includes, but is not limited to, concentrated learning in one of these areas: Lead Pastor & Church Planter, Creative Arts, Worship & Media, Spiritual Growth & Life Help, Student Ministry, Children’s Ministry, or Operations & Administration. A student is not required to achieve a degree to join a Northwoods church planting team. However, he or she will need to complete commensurate work as accomplishes the M.A. to move forward for ministry credentialing with the Fellowship of Evangelical Churches.
