Master's in Strategic Leadership for Ministry
El Alfarero offers a Professional Master's Degree in Strategic Ministerial Leadership with two possible specialisms, one in Biblical Counselling and the other in Developing Self-sustaining Projects in association with the Global University of Lifelong Learning (GULL) who will recognize the Master's Degree.
The Master's Programme (El Aprendiz) is designed to holistically prepare men and women who have a call to ministry. El Aprendiz seeks to integrate servants, services and ministries within a transformative community in a strategic and practical way.
How does it work?
El Aprendiz is based on individual mentoring relationships, which allow change and transformation at a heart-level and not just intellectually. The programme consists of 20 basic subjects in 6 study areas that combine the theoretical with the practical.
These 6 areas are Spirituality, Bible, Leadership, Biblical Counselling, Administration, and Contextualization. In addition, students will have other modules in their area of specialty or major. A maximum of 20 students will be accepted annually to allow personal care for each of them. The Programme is 100% face-to-face.
In addition to meeting the requirements of the classes, each student of the full Masters Programme has to meet 5 extra requirements:
• A weekly one-hour mentoring appointment
• Three hours of weekly volunteering in a project or ministry
• Intentional evangelism at least once a month
• Attend the 5 El Aprendiz meetings annually
• Form a support team and write a prayer letter every 3 months.
Modules included in El Aprendiz
Although our intake for the whole programme is capped at 20, each class can be taken by the general public separately, making it accessible to leaders, pastors and missionaries who want to continue growing in an integral way without having to do the full Master's Degree, and more recently a number of the classes are available online.
