Every year, MHGS hosts a forum for the Master of Divinity students to present their Integrative Projects. These projects are 9-month long studies in a subject that an MDiv student has a passion around and range from biblical study to cultural exegesis to ecclesial challenges. After many months of research, processing, and writing, the final product is a dissertational paper. This year, we proudly participated in the presentation of six MDiv students as they shared their major accomplishment to us.
Below are all six individual presentations along with a link to download the PDF of their papers.
