The Living LABORATORY of Grace Community Church
All theology is aimed at the edification of the local body of Christ. Located on the campus of Grace Community Church, TMS gives you the opportunity to daily put your theology into practice.
Ministry is not something we want our students to begin upon graduation. And because of our strategic location on the campus of Grace Church, students have the opportunity to engage in ministry while still in preparation. Such opportunities might include preaching both in the church and in outreach events, internships with pastors, outreach in the local neighborhood, abortion clinic ministry, and counseling and discipleship.
Ministry is just as much caught as it is taught. And thus our desire is to provide our students with as many opportunities to be around faithful pastors and elders as we can. One practical way this happens is through discipleship labs. Small groups of students meet weekly with a ministry leader from Grace Church to discuss practical ministry and personal development. By the time a student graduates from seminary, he will have had years of opportunity to interact with and learn from pastors and ministry leaders.
The Master's Seminary seeks to do one thing well, to produce preachers. And for our students to grow as preachers, they need to preach. Our small student body and investment from Grace Church pastors gives our students the opportunity to do just that. We divide our students into small groups in which they are given the opportunity to preach repeatedly in front of different pastors and elders, they are given constructive feedback, and then they begin to prepare again for their next sermon. It is within these labs that students are given the opportunity to practice using every tool that has been given to them in seminary.
Online courses assist Master of Divinity students in completing up to a year's worth of courses online before joining us on campus.
We offer up to one year of night courses for the convenience of students who need to work full-time.
Utilizing online courses, modular courses, courses by arrangement, and Saturday courses, students can complete the Master of Divinity program in four years without needing to take semester-long courses during the week.
In addition to our Los Angeles campus, students can also participate in the M.Div. program at locations throughout the U.S.
