Doctor of Ministry

Doctor of Ministry

Program Overview

The Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) in Biblical Preaching is a program designed to help pastors and church leaders take their preaching and leadership to the next level. Students will participate in a series of seminars and a directed ministry project to enhance their understanding of biblical preaching and to further develop their preaching gifts.

The Doctor of Ministry is a professional doctoral degree focused primarily on the practice of ministry. The educational experiences in the D.Min. program at Anderson University will be delivered through a hybrid approach, involving independent and online study, three week-long seminars (two on campus, one in a selected city), three event-based seminars, and development and implementation of a significant ministry project and subsequent dissertation. The student will be expected to plan, carry out and evaluate the project at a level appropriate for a doctoral degree candidate.

Upon completion of coursework, D.Min. students are required to complete a ministry capstone project that is applicable to the student's ministry setting.

A maximum of 15 students per year will be admitted to the D.Min, in Biblical Preaching, to assure each student of strong guidance and supervision at an appropriate level.
