Marian University’s Master of Arts in Pastoral Ministry (MAPM) program provides students with the necessary skills and education to be pastoral ministers in the church. Not only is our vision to educate transformative leaders, but our mission is to promote our Franciscan values: the dignity of the individual, peace and justice, reconciliation, and responsible stewardship. These values, as well as guidelines for certification as an ecclesial minister, provide a strong foundation for those called to serve God’s mission.
Completion of this terminal degree will help you grow professionally, intellectually, spiritually, personally, and pastorally so that you are equipped to serve the pastoral needs of churches across the world. This is a two-year, full-time graduate degree program at our Indianapolis campus and requires experience in pastoral ministry.
