Professor lecturing students

A strategic partnership between Wooddale Church in Eden Prairie and University of Northwestern provides the opportunity for Wooddale leaders to earn a Master of Arts in Theological Studies (MATS) or a Master of Arts in Ministry Leadership with a few specialized transfer courses taught at the church. It is the desire of Wooddale and Northwestern to provide leaders with quality theological and biblical training to help fulfill our mission of making more disciples for Jesus Christ. Designed for working professionals or those in ministry, this 12-course program can be completed in less than two years and will help leaders practically apply their studies. 


A discount participation form needs to be submitted. Please ask your admission counselor for this form.
