If you are looking for a way to deepen and transform your leadership skills within ministry and to grow as a follower of Christ, this rigorous but accessible program is designed to improve your practical expertise, help you explore the concerns of your own ministry setting, and challenge your heart and mind.

Is the Doctor of Ministry program right for me? If you want to…

  • Earn a post-MDiv, terminal degree in ministry
  • Challenge and enrich your current involvement in a full-time ministry context (pastoring, teaching, missions work, administration of a Christian organization, therapeutic ministries, etc.)
  • Work with a dedicated Cohort focusing on Transformational Leadership, Spiritual Formation, Black Church Studies, Chaplaincy or Independent Design

... then the Doctor of Ministry program is right for you.

What to expect in the Doctor of Ministry program:

  • 32 semester hours of coursework
  • A contextual model of learning dependent upon your participation in and reflection upon your own ministry, from integrative projects and case studies to applying theory into practice
  • A final project in which you will apply your learning to a ministry task in your local context
  • Experience with social science research, assessment, and interpretation within the context of ministry
  • Engagement in the expression of fundamental commitments related to self-care and personal growth necessary to ministry
