The Master of Arts in Chaplaincy and Ministry Care (MACP) prepares men and women to serve as chaplains in hospital, military, corporate, or campus environments and in other ministries of care


If you care deeply about people and seek to provide a combination of pastoral care, emotional and spiritual care, and practical life counseling to people outside of the church, becoming a chaplain is a great way to serve those without regular access to ministers.

*This degree program cannot be completed in the state of Tennessee.

The Curriculum

The 3-year MACP program includes DTS common core of Bible and theology courses along with practical training in preaching, counseling, pastoral care, and leadership.
