WOrthy of Double Honor (32 Credits)
Through the crucible of ministry experience, the Lord has shaped your life and service far beyond the classroom knowledge of your previous seminary days. Now, questions you didn’t even know to ask when you first began your ministry cross your mind daily. Maybe you recognize aspects of your preaching and teaching that you would like to revitalize or there is a particular challenge in your ministry you would like to focus on. Maybe you desire once again to exchange biblical ideas and sharpen iron in the fellowship of other ministers who share a journey similar to your own. Now is an excellent time for you to apply for the Doctor of Ministry. Especially designed for those who have already been serving in the ministry with an MDiv or its equivalent, the DMin degree will sharpen your ability to proclaim the Word of God and allow you to focus on special ministry needs.
The Doctor of Ministry (DMin) is our most advanced professional ministry degree for those already engaged in full-time ministry. This program involves advanced instruction in one of three concentrations: biblical counseling, expository preaching, and pastoral ministry. It is designed to deepen and sharpen the minister’s ability to proclaim the Scriptures and to strengthen his competency in serving the church. You will receive practical instruction from highly qualified, experienced faculty who have themselves ministered in the church—most of them as pastors—for many years.
Those applying for this degree program must have a Master of Divinity degree or its equivalent with a 3.0 minimum GPA. However, ministers with only a master’s degree are also invited to apply, and in many cases may be admitted to the program with some extra courses assigned to bring them up to the MDiv equivalency.
