154 Logsdon Seminary Logsdon Seminary is a distinct entity within the Logsdon School of Theology of Hardin-Simmons University. The mission of the seminary is to prepare servant leaders for Christian ministry through an academically challenging theological education centered on the Lordship of Christ, guided by the authority of Scripture, and focused on the global mission of the church. Logsdon Seminary offers three graduate theological degrees that prepare men and women for professional ministry. The Master of Divinity is the foundational graduate degree for persons who anticipate ministry leadership within a local church and other settings. The Master of Arts in Family Ministry equips persons for educational and personal ministry in a local church setting with special emphasis on family relationships and needs. The Doctor of Ministry provides the highest level of professional preparation for ministry. The degree emphasizes the integration of theological reflection and practice, supervision and mentorship, and servant leadership that draws on spiritual and missional formation in both church and minister. Logsdon Seminary and its three degrees are accredited by the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada (10 Summit Park Drive, Pittsburgh, PA 15275–1103; phone: 412.788.6505; website: www.ats.edu) .

MAFM/CCMF dual degree program will provide ATS-accredited preparation for Christian ministry from Logsdon Seminary and fully accredited training in counseling and marriage and family therapy from Hardin-Simmons University’s Department of Psychology.
