For city leaders desiring the best insight and tools to transform their city through innovative new approaches to relief, development and advocacy.
The Master of Transformational Leadership (MATL) degree is designed especially for urban ministry leaders who desire greater expertise and skill in leading transformation in cities. Students come from church, education, social work, government and small business backgrounds but are united in a desire to understand more about the complex social, economic, physical, political, and environmental systems that make up global cities. Bible, Christian history and theology are taught from the spiritually invigorating perspective of God's work in the global city. Students learn both the why and how of current innovations in urban relief, development and advocacy so they are equipped to invent new approaches in their unique context based upon the best examples in the world. Students can specialize in personal leadership development or dig deeper in the core topic areas of relief, development or advocacy. Students can also access a unique set of theological core courses designed for leaders working with younger populations in global urban centers.
All four BGU programs engage the unique niche areas of expertise in the BGU network of students, alumni, and faculty.
