The two-year Master of Arts in Christian Education and Formation program (MACEF) includes basic studies in Bible, theology, church history, and practical theology. Students choose from one of three tracks: teaching, youth and young adult ministries, or spiritual formation and mission. Each track attends to philosophical, cultural, developmental, and procedural dimensions of Christian education and formation. The MACEF is designed to prepare students for the ministry of education and formation in congregational and institutional settings and to provide training for teaching the Christian religion in church or secular schools. The MACEF is a professional degree with optional field education experience.
