D.Min. with a concentration in Christian Leadership & Renewal

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 Christian Leadership & Renewal concentration focuses on the nuts and bolts of effective leadership and critical topics, advanced skills and complex issues commonly faced by ministry leaders.

  • Understand how to build the leaders around you as you examine how God builds a person into a leader.
  • Gain biblical insights that help you dissect leadership elements, styles, philosophical models, emergence theory, mentoring, and change dynamics.
  • Explore tools for gaining leadership confidence so that your church and your team grow into mature leaders.
