The Charles L. Feinberg Center for Messianic Jewish Studies
The Charles L. Feinberg Center for Messianic Jewish Studies program offers an accredited Master of Divinity degree in Messianic Jewish Studies. The program is designed to train those with a call to full-time Jewish ministry as Messianic congregational leaders, outreach workers or educators. These unique training needs are the focus of a program emphasizing biblical languages, Hebrew and Greek.
Students are encouraged to explore this rich heritage and to develop effective methods to reach and serve today’s Jewish community. Practical areas of Jewish ministry are addressed through courses in apologetics, Jewish-Christian relations, and pastoral care and counseling. The Master of Divinity program is a professional degree designed to be completed in three years of full-time graduate study.
The Charles L. Feinberg Center also offers a 30-credit certificate in Messianic Jewish studies. Both the certificate and the Master of Divinity program are offered in conjunction with the Talbot School of Theology, a graduate institution of Biola University, which is partnering with Chosen People Ministries to provide this education to the future leaders and missionaries to the Jewish people. The program is approved by the New York State Board of Regents and the Association of Theological Schools.
