Beginning this fall, The Master’s Seminary will offer our Master of Divinity program at two new distance locations in Northern California and Anchorage, Alaska.
The Master’s Seminary in Northern California is located at NorthCreek Church in Walnut Creek, CA. With over forty years of ministry experience, Pastor John McNeff served as the senior pastor of NorthCreek Church and is now dedicated to serving students at the Northern California location.
Many of our graduates are currently pastoring churches and faithfully preaching the gospel in Northern California. As their network grows, so does the need for formal pastoral training in the surrounding area. This fall, the Northern California location will begin training men currently serving in leadership at our alumni churches in the Bay Area, Fresno, and Sacramento.
This new distance location is poised to offer world-class seminary training in Northern California, and to serve alumni churches in the surrounding area by bringing pastoral ministry training to their church leaders.
The Master’s Seminary in Alaska is located at Anchorage Grace Church in Anchorage, Alaska. Senior Pastor, Dr. Jeff Crotts, is an alumnus of our M.Div. and D.Min. programs and serves as dean of the Anchorage location.
Options for pastoral training in Alaska are extremely limited. Some men leave the state to attend seminary, but most simply don’t train. At this location, men in Alaska will, for the first time, have access to quality seminary training in their own state. Alaska’s ministry needs are great: churches need pastors trained in and committed to expository preaching and people in hundreds of villages need to hear the gospel.
The Master’s Seminary in Anchorage, Alaska is poised to be a strategic launching point for pastors and missionaries who embrace the challenges of life in Alaska and want to proclaim God’s Word.
