The e4-12 Program
What is it?
e4-12 is the new groundbreaking delivery method where you can earn an accredited Master of Arts in Ministry degree in just 30 hours for the unbelievably low price of $99 per credit hour. This is made possible through a partnership with Piedmont International University and New Life Church. The partnership links our church and the School of Ministry together to provide this one of a kind educational opportunity.

What does e4-12 mean?

The “e4-12” name comes from Ephesians 4:12 where the Lord gives gifted teachers to the church to equip the saints for ministry and build the body. Our goal is to assist churches by graduating Christian leaders who are

  • competent in Biblical and theological knowledge
  • strong in their personal faith
  • skilled in ministry
  • outstanding in communication
  • prepared to understand and engage their culture with courageous proclamation of the gospel and confident defense of the faith.
Two Ways to Learn!

Master of Arts in Ministry degree

The MA in Ministry degree, a 30 credit hour program is made up of ten courses comprised of  twelve, professionally filmed, 45-minute video classes. Each class will be streamed and played into a classroom at your church. Students seeking the master’s degree:

  • Must hold a recognized bachelor’s degree
  • Apply to Piedmont for online classes
  • Gather each week at a time decided by the church to watch the video classes
  • Log on to Piedmont’s Blackboard server for discussions, class assignments, and exams
  • Complete the 30 hour required courses
  • Receive a master’s degree

By following the normal sequence, a student can earn an accredited Master of Arts in Ministry degree in as little as three and a half years for less than $3,000. Upon successful completion of the program, graduates are invited to come to campus and participate in graduation and receive their diplomas.

Enrichment Program

What about those who don’t have a bachelor’s degree? Can they participate and learn? Absolutely! 
An enrichment option is available for only $39 per course for those not seeking credit nor a master’s degree. This is perfect for Sunday school teachers, small group leaders, church leaders and others who just want to be better equipped for ministry and learn for their own enrichment.
