About this course
This program is designed to meet student needs whether already in a formal church setting or involved in a para-church ministry. The program is designed around the cohort model where students gather with their professor twice a year for a time of intense personal and academic development. All other work is submitted online and thus students may take classes conveniently from anywhere in the world. The Doctor of Ministry degree is designed for those who have earned the MDiv, MMin, MTS, or comparable degree and who has substantial experience in ministry. In this program, the student will build upon previous studies within the context of current ministry to achieve greater leadership competency in today’s global environment.
Non-native English speakers applying to programs taught in English must demonstrate proficiency in the English language by achieving a minimum score of 560 on the Test of English as a Foreign Language’s (TOEFL) written examination; or a minimum score of 83 on the Internet examination. In those doctoral programs taught in languages other than English, the applicant must demonstrate proficiency in that language.
