Connections Students on Wall

Completing a Master of Divinity
through studying as part of our Online Community

Are you one of the many people God is calling into ministry who is unable to relocate to Bethany Theological Seminary for training?
  • Do you need to continue your current career while preparing to answer God's call?
  • Are you already involved in ministry, and seek to further your education while continuing to serve where God has put you?
  • Are you feeling the call to prepare for ministry, but are unable to relocate because of family or other obligations?
If so, Bethany's MDiv Connections track is designed with you in mind!

MDiv Connections students join Bethany's close-knit learning community in a rigorous and fully-accredited graduate-level education track that does not require you to relocate to earn your Master of Divinity degree. It makes it possible to earn your degree in three to six years while moving at your own pace.

A Personalized and Flexible Program that Fits Your Needs

The curriculum combines online learning in community with face-to-face intensive courses on campus. MDiv Connections students have the same choice of optional emphases as other MDiv students.

GraduatesYou have access to on-campus resources and courses as well as Connections courses offered in various formats.

In addition, traditional and block face-to-face courses can be taken at Bethany, at Bethany's Susquehanna Valley Ministry Center (PA) campus, via cross-registration with our sister schools, or even transferred in from other local seminaries.

Yes, it is possible to complete your Master of Divinity degree through Bethany without moving to Richmond!

Josh Brockway
Master of Theology '04

JoshWhen I say I've attended seminary, the conversation quickly diverts, "So where are you pastoring?" To which I reply, "Well, I'm not serving a congregation, I'm getting my PhD." I'm sure that most persons attending seminary will be asked that same question regardless of his/her vocational goals. The truth is that anyone can attend Bethany: minister-in-training, curious Christians, and yes, even those who plan to pursue doctoral study.
