The Outdoor and Adventure Leadership (OAL) concentration is designed for current camp ministry professionals. It focuses on missional leadership and evangelism for camp contexts. It takes 4+ years to complete part time.
In addition to normal M.A. degree program entry requirements, one year of appropriate experience in OAL work as certified by the Director of the Evangelism and Leadership Degree program is required prior to taking the initial CFM core course at HoneyRock. The courses required for the concentration are:
- CFM 563
- CFM 662
- CFM 663
- and CFM 664
These courses are taken at HoneyRock and each runs for a two weeks. HoneyRock room and board cost $130 per week, in addition to the cost of tuition. The entry course for this concentration is CFM 563; the remaining concentration courses may be taken over a two-year span. Non-OAL students can register for HoneyRock courses only by permission from the Evangelism and Leadership OAL Coordinator.
In order to receive the Masters in Evangelism and Leadership degree, students will also take 24 semester hours of Evangelism and Leadership courses on the Wheaton College campus, through week-long intensives and occasional online courses if desired. Costs for taking the week-long courses on campus include tuition and additional costs for room and board, which can be found at minimal expense. Courses include EVAN 526, 534 (or substitute approved by the Program Coordinator), 542, 545, 559, 573, INTR 691 (0-credit forum for residential full-time students only), 692, and one Biblical and Theological Studies Requirement Category I course.
A fall start date is recommended for the Evangelism and Leadership OAL program. However exceptions may be made on an individual basis and requests should be made in writing to the OAL Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
