Our world is hurting, and many are in need of a caregiver who has a heart for others. Now more than ever, Christian ministry is a matter of the heart, as people experience a variety of issues and concerns—personal, relational and spiritual. Even among the most sincere and compassionate servants, training and skills are often lacking to deal with problems in the families, couples, adults, youth and children they serve. The convenient, online and engaging Master of Arts Christian Care (MACC) program at LBC | Capital is focused on preparing the head, heart and hands of ministry practitioners to meet individual and collective care needs in the Church and parachurch communities.
The MACC program prepares students to effectively care for those in need, based on Jesus’ ministry and His Scriptures, as well as reliable behavioral science insights and caregiving practices. Graduates are not only equipped to make necessary referrals and train others in Christian caregiving but also develop and deliver effective, complete caregiving that is rooted in biblical truth.
