The Doctor of Ministry degree program is designed to provide advanced training in the practice of biblically and theologically oriented ministry to those actively involved in vocational or bivocational ministry. The program concentrates on developing expertise in the biblical rationale, sociological strategy, and practical implementation of ministry.
The Doctor of Philosophy combines the highest of standards of academic scholarship with a heart for God’s Word and the theology of the church. Students in the PhD program may major in either the Division of Biblical Studies or the Division of Theological Studies.
The heart of the DEdMin is flexibility and personalization. To begin, you will create an overall plan of study. This plan may emphasize one of several areas such as Advanced Academic Ministry, Educational Leadership, Marriage and Family Ministry, Spiritual Formation, or Women in Ministry. Students may also design a degree plan with a varied approach. That plan, which is evaluated annually, originates from individual goals and an assessment of the perceived strengths and limitations of each student.
