Liberty University’s Master of Religious Education degree program, with a specialization in Chaplaincy, prepares you to become a military chaplain or servant leader. As a student in the MRE program, you will be trained to be a wise, faithful steward of the Gospel, and develop specific ministry skills, strategies and Christian character traits relevant for successful ministry in a military or institutional chaplaincy setting. In this program you will examine the theological and cultural issues relevant for formal and informal chaplaincy settings. You will also observe the similarities and differences among the various types of chaplaincies, giving careful attention to ministry in religiously pluralistic, multicultural, and multi-staff environments. Some of these settings may include service as a military chaplain, or in corrections facilities/prisons, geriatric/eldercare homes, emergency response arenas, hospitals and workplace/industrial settings.
