The online Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership is designed for individuals seeking to grow as leaders and further develop their leadership skills. With two tracks from which to choose – the Organizational Leadership track or Church Revitalization track – this degree is a versatile alternative to the traditional MBA that focuses on emotional intelligence, leading with Christian values and ethics, team building, organizational psychology, strategic thinking, leading change, and much more. Whether as an employee in a public organization or a leader of a ministry or non-profit organization, the Organizational Leadership program at the University of Valley Forge will provide students with the necessary tools to effectively lead organizations and meet the challenges leaders face from a biblical perspective.

The online Master of Arts degree in Worship Studies is designed for worship leaders, music pastors, church musicians, lead pastors, associate pastors, missionaries, and laypersons interested in pursuing graduate Studies in worship. Each course in the program will focus on unchanging Biblical truth as a basis for assessing the appropriateness and usefulness of traditions and innovations in worship. Through this program, Pentecostal spirituality is understood in both its unique distinctive and its historical connections with the classic Christian spirituality of the apostles, the church fathers, and the reformers. Emphasis will be placed on the ministry of the Holy Spirit in private and public worship. The degree is a total of 33 credits and can be completed in approximately two years entirely online.

The online Master of Arts in Theology provides a well-rounded exposure and updating of one’s knowledge and application of theological concepts.

Non-Matriculating Students

Non-matriculating students may take the first two courses in the Graduate Studies Program without making a full application to the program. However, they do not qualify for Federal Financial Aid.


The non-matriculating student must meet the first three admissions requirements. If after the first two courses you wish to move on in the program, you must make a full application. If you achieve an A or B in the first two courses, you may substitute this for the portfolio requirement. The other admissions documents will be required as stated above.

Cross-Cultural Experiences

One of the distinguishing aspects of the Christian Leadership and Theology master’s degrees at UVF is the requirement to function and study cross-culturally through global experiences.


  • Students will complete two of the experiences as part of their graduate education.
  • Theology students will focus on theological issues in cross-cultural settings while Christian Leadership students will focus on leadership issues in cross-cultural settings.
  • The cross-cultural experiences provide a life-impacting exposure to study other cultures.
  • The trips are designed to occur in other countries and within cross-cultural settings in the United States. Students will select national or international cross-cultural experiences in which to participate. All sites must be approved by the program director.
  • The expectation is that all trips will last for a minimum of 7-10 days with pre- and post-class work required.
  • For students unable to travel outside of the country, the program can be tailored to allow settings in which the trips can function within Metropolitan communities or other cross-cultural venues.
