Open the Word, fasten your seatbelt, and dive into the Un-Apologetics’ Apologetics of the Warnborough MA in Practical Theology and Biblical Leadership!
The Warnborough College MA program in Practical Theology is unique and delivered completely online. It is designed to enhance Modern Church Leaders with a deeper look into God’s heart for His Church while meeting the needs of a postmodern leader or scholar looking for new paradigms. You will not only grow in your knowledge and strength, you will learn techniques and a system to bring that to others in a pragmatic way – in other words, Practical Theology and Biblical Leadership.
Because of the enormous flexibility of the WCI program, students may work with their mentor to structure their program in the context of their individual interests, and professional and academic goals. Read the complete module descriptions for information as well as ideas – think of them as a set of guidelines, rather than rules. They will also give you ideas on areas you may wish to pursue most aggressively, in your graduate program.

For Practical Theology, students must choose a subject of Theology as it applies to the real world. A practical approach to Biblical leadership typically entails studying a book or section of the Bible, or weaving a theme throughout the text. Some examples would include:
- God’s Heart for Leaders expressed within the Book of Acts.
- The evolution of Biblical Leadership Theory from Old to New Testament.
- Peter as a model for leadership through Redemption.
- Paul’s lessons to Timothy, Titus, and Philemon.
- The Teachings of Jesus on the Church.
- A Study of Women Leaders within the Bible.
There are literally thousands of possible subjects and examples, and a student should develop those ideas as they apply to their particular mission and role within the church.
The Thesis should be composed in academic and research paper style (MLA preferred, but footnote accepted), with ample sources and textual quotes. Word count should be between 30,000 to 40,000 words.
