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.
