The Master of Divinity program is the only program at Providence Seminary that is endorsed by the faculty to lead to ordination and is the normal degree prerequisite for ordained pastoral ministry in the church. It is also the degree that serves as a prerequisite for doctoral-level theological education. The Honours M.Div. is particularly designed for this purpose.
The purpose of the Master of Divinity program at Providence is to provide a strong biblical-theological foundation and a love for the Word of God, to foster a love for the church and a commitment to enhancing its well-being, to develop your people-helping skills, to develop and sharpen your particular spiritual gifts, and to provide you with a foundational grasp of all aspects of training necessary to pastoral ministry, including:
The foundation of Providence's pastoral preparation is the development of strong biblical-theological and people-helping skills. At the same time, we recognize that the Holy Spirit gives different gifts to God’s people, and that service to the body of Christ involves the development and sharpening of many spiritual abilities. In recognition of this diversity of interests, Providence offers two Master of Divinity programs, each of which provides students with an opportunity to shape their education beyond the core curriculum to serve their own needs and gifts. The core curriculum insures a foundational grasp of all aspects of training necessary to pastoral ministry. Then, the choice of a track permits either the specialization in a particular discipline or a broad exposure to the various aspects of ministerial leadership and concern, both academic and practical.
