Doctor of Ministry

Advanced studies for experienced ministers pursuing excellence in the practice of ministry

Think deeply. Live faithfully. Lead with purpose.

Frontline ministry is hard. In the best of times, it demands creativity, bravery, and wisdom. In turbulent times of change? It may be one of the toughest jobs on earth.

If you are an experienced minister, none of this is news to you. But perhaps that is why you need this degree. More than an honorific title, the Doctor of Ministry provides you with the opportunity to join with a cohort of other seasoned ministers to read great texts, to “talk shop,” and to support one another in your growth as a leader and practitioner. What is more, the DMin guides you in designing a ministry project that deepens your expertise in your ministerial context.  Maybe this is the perfect moment to “sharpen your tools” for the work ahead.
