Women in Leadership Cohort
Doctor of Ministry and Master of Arts in Christian Ministries
About the Program
The first ever of this type of cohort at the doctoral level in any Assemblies of God higher educational institution, the Women in Leadership Cohort, Doctor of Ministry Program is also available as a Master of Arts in Christian Ministry.
The cohort is designed for women in full-time ministry who demonstrate strategic leadership competencies. With sensitivity to issues pertaining to women, participants learn essentials for success to match the diverse, specialized, and emerging needs for effective ministry in the twenty-first century. Although the cohort consists of women only, each class is taught by a male and female team to provide a gender balanced platform. The purpose is to provide advanced leadership skills for women so they can emerge poised to function in their ministry settings with bolstered credentials, while being equipped to enrich the Church with spiritual maturity and integrated scholarship. Such a focus affords the opportunity for a group of women to travel together as they pursue new academic goals, share discoveries, and continue the discipline of becoming “leaders worth following.”
The cohort model involves women leaders from diverse ministry backgrounds in three five day classes per year, each February, June and October. Our participants usually finish the program in three or four years, but the benefits begin on the first day!
The cohort experience at AGTS can be boiled down to one word: transformation. The exponential influence experienced through the synergy of the participants who are stellar Christian leaders, is life changing, while relationships are formed that last a lifetime!
The purpose of AGTS is to train men and women to fulfill the mission of the Church as taught in Scripture—shaping servant leaders with knowledge, skill, and passion to revitalize the Church and evangelize the world in the power of the Spirit. The mission of each cohort (class of participants) is to provide delivery systems and an environment that demonstrates AGTS’ commitment as a center for resourcing ministry needs for individuals and organizations.
