Equipping passionate, reflective practitioners as Doctors of the Church

The Doctor of Ministry (DMin) is the highest professional degree for men and women already successfully engaged in ministry. This program enables leaders in Christian ministry to increase their effectiveness in the church, parachurch organization, or mission in which they minister.

Graduates of this program will grow in heart, head, and hands: loving more deeply, comprehending more fully, and serving more skillfully in their specific areas of calling.
