Through our flexible learning options, completing an MDiv, MACFD, or MAICS is possible without moving to Kansas City. (Note that the MATS is available as a fully distance program) Residency for each of these programs may be completed through one-week, intensives offered each Fall called Convene.
Convene includes three courses comprising 7-credit hours, which are completed over one week (Wednesday to Tuesday) on the Kansas City campus. The face-to-face experience provides opportunity to engage in thoughtful reflection on the practice of ministry in a rich learning environment. Four weeks of Convene fulfill residency for the MDiv program; two weeks fulfill residency for the MACFD and MACIS.
