Structure of the DMin Program
The Doctor of Ministry is a cohort-based professional doctoral degree designed for full-time professionals in the context of their ministry. Concentrations are offered in Chaplaincy, Evangelism & Church Growth, Family Ministry, Global Mission, Leadership, Preaching, Urban Ministries, and Youth Ministry. Occasional cohorts may be offered using Spanish as the language of instruction. Various concentrations may be offered for cohorts in the context of their ministry outside the North American Division.
