Degrees

The Doctor of Ministry program is designed for Christian leaders desiring to expand their knowledge and develop their leadership abilities.

The Doctor of Ministry Program aims at reviving, engaging, growing and equipping church leaders to lead with increasing theological depth and leadership intelligence. John Wesley’s priority on Scripture, reason, experience and tradition undergirds the curriculum of our D.Min. program, as well as our commitment to rigorous inquiry, dialogue and application.

Doctor of Ministry

Why a D.Min.?

Christ came into the world to provide purpose, love and meaning for people. In the midst of uncertainty and constant change, Jesus offers stability and hope.

You are a ministry professional, who loves God’s people and who seeks to live out the hope of Christ to a hurting humanity.

We are Asbury Theological Seminary. We offer a Doctor of Ministry degree that will…

  • Expand your ministry capacities

  • Revitalize your mind and heart
