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!

Kimberly Koczan-Flory

KimberlyNot long ago, I was uncertain if I would be a Bethany student. My calling to ministry holds a strong commitment to the church, but has always extended beyond church doors. I am passionate about the ways God is moving within congregations, but committed also to those who seek God outside of the institutional structures. One of the primary places. I feel most fully engaged in life-giving ministry is as a spiritual director. Several years ago I completed a certification program in spiritual direction and feel deeply honored to listen with individuals, groups, and organizations about how ordinary life meets with our extraordinary God.
