Master of Arts in Transformational Urban Leadership

The 45-unit Masteral course is designed to give urban leaders the opportunity to complete graduate studies that will enable leaders to transform localized urban poor areas in Metro Manila and the major cities of Asia. Our emphasis is on equipping for transformation.
These programs combine community development-related urban transformation skills with an emphasis on evangelism and church planting.
Students are equipped to become movement leaders by mobilizing and multiplying teams. The programs emphasize classroom theory combined with significant practical fieldwork. Students are exposed to the necessary theory components but the majority of their time spent in urban poor settings testing those theories in the practice of urban ministry.
