The other day I was reading an article on advanced degrees in the Economist. It turns out that putting a Master's degree on your resume doesn't always equal more money! Go figure. Yet I'm still satisfied that I'll be getting my Master of Arts degree in Theology Studies this winter from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. Unfortunately, with just under 5 years left in the Navy, I'm not sure what I can do with a degree like that. The Navy wouldn't let me be a chaplain because it's not a long enough degree and I don't have official experience in church, so that's out.
So I'm going to put it out to all of you. Please let me know what you think. What are your recommendations for this path? Do churches hire staffers with just a master of arts? Do mission agencies take people on with that degree? What about parachurch organizations?
Love to hear your thoughts!
