Calling all Jewish believers interested in a Master of Arts degree in Jewish Ministry…

Are you interested in an accredited graduate program that is designed to equip you for Jewish ministry? One that is flexible to your schedule? A degree program that allows you to remain in your home area as much as possible? If the answer to those questions is “yes,” then we think you ought to explore the Master of Arts in Specialized Ministry offered at Western Seminary’s Los Gatos, California campus in partnership with Jews for Jesus.

The Specialization in Jewish Ministry track offers a Master of Arts degree (60 units), a Graduate Studies Diploma (30 units) and a Graduate Studies Certificate (16 units). The core courses for Bible survey and Systematic Theology are available in the distance learning format on tape or DVD with on-line interaction proctored by an instructor. Other courses are available at the Los Gatos, California or Portland, Oregon campuses of Western Seminary. Jewish ministry courses include Evangelism and Apologetics in Jewish ministry, Communicating Christ in a Jewish Context, Jewish Religious Thought, History of Jewish Missions, Theological Themes in Jewish Ministry, Discipleship/Spiritual Formation in a Jewish Context and more. The best of Jews for Jesus scholarship and field experience will be incorporated into the Jewish Ministry track curriculum.
