The Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) degree program is a 3-year *cohort program designed for individuals who wish to engage in an advanced level of ministry and leadership preparation. Through an integration of current ministry/leadership practice in their learning, formation, and research in the program, graduates will be prepared to serve in church and and/or marketplace. This program has 2 tracks and students will engage in a holistic formational process of conversation and discernment with relevant ministry/leadership/pastoral care literature, dialogue with cohort peers and faculty, continuing spiritual formation and ministry practice, and advanced field research. Accordingly, all applicants for matriculation are expected to be engaged in some acceptable form of ministerial or leadership practice.

*The Doctor of Ministry program utilizes a cohort learning process. Students enroll in the program with a group of peers who are co-learners, spiritual partners, and peer mentors. New cohorts are launched each year in June and complete their educational journeys in three years.
