Describe the accredited programs in cross-cultural ministries or missions offered by your organization: 
M.A. in Ministry and Leadership The M.A. in Ministry and Leadership program enables students to bring transformation to churches and parachurch organizations through a rich biblical understanding and a refined leadership skill set. This training spans communication theory, biblical studies, theology, discipleship and spiritual formation -- with the result that our students lead and serve effectively in a wide variety of global ministry roles. And with over 14 electives available in intercultural studies and communication, it can serve mission-minded men and women well. Doctor of Missiology (D.Miss.) The Doctor of Missiology (D.Miss.) is an advanced professional degree, designed to equip Christian leaders and missions workers for increased skill and effectiveness while serving in pluralistic and multi-ethnic contexts. This in-service program is designed for ministers who are already involved in cross-cultural work, so that professors and colleagues from around the world can connect at interactive class modules with a minimum of interruption to life. The training culminates in the research, writing, and defense of a dissertation that explores a major topic of mission and how the student can advance that work.
