Describe the accredited programs in cross-cultural ministries or missions offered by your organization: 
The Master of Divinity (Major: Missiology) is a 90-credit hour seminary degree designed for students who have ordination and a full-time, professional cross-cultural ministry in view. The program is intended to prepare career missionaries for evangelism, church planting, discipleship and leadership in church, missions and parachurch ministries in cross-cultural contexts, whether on the mission fields of North America or the most unreached regions of the world.The missiology major also provides technical skills that lead to competence and confidence in situations in which the gospel message must be preceded by addressing human quality of life needs. It also seeks to impart to students a vision for multiplying leadership by training indigenous leaders to plant churches and lead their own evangelism movements, holistic ministries of compassion, and community development projects. The M.Div. (Major: Missiology) is ideally suited for those seeking to serve with missions agencies in a full-time, professional capacity and provides the broad theological and ministry training required by most ordaining bodies. Students planning to pursue ordination or terminal degrees should consult the relevant organizations to determine their specific requirements.
