D.Min. with a concentration in Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE)
Fully Online Or Online Degree with Residency
The Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) degree, offered completely online or online with some required residency, is an ideal professional and terminal degree for those who serve in congregational or pulpit ministries, institutional or military chaplaincies, counseling ministries, missions agencies, parachurch organizations, or other ministry settings where advanced leadership skills are essential. You will engage in a tailor-made program that leverages high-impact education and maximum practical application in a multidenominational, ethnically diverse setting. You also will explore how to accurately discern vision and mobilize others to fulfill that vision. The Clinical Pastoral Education concentration will prepare you to become a highly trained professional in institutional chaplaincy. The School of Divinity is a member seminary of the Association of Clinical Pastoral Education (ACPE). D.Min. students may transfer completed CPE units as elective hours, reducing the time and cost of your degree by one-third.
