SEU to Launch Doctor of Ministry Program This Fall
Southeastern University has announced a new Doctor of Ministry (DMin) program to start this upcoming fall. The Doctor of Ministry (DMin) is the highest degree for people in vocational ministry, such as pastors, associate pastors, chaplains, missionaries and those in denominational leadership and parachurch ministry. This will be the second doctoral degree to be offered at Southeastern, following the introduction of the Doctor of Education in 2014.“The DMin will give ministry leaders top-notch skills in reading and responding to cultural and church changes and challenges by innovative approaches to applying the unchanging truths of the Bible and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”
“SEU has been recognized in recent years as the leader in Pentecostal scholarship, and as the fastest-growing Pentecostal university and the largest university ever in the Assemblies of God, Southeastern is postured to deliver the most innovative and effective DMin available,” said Dr. Alan Ehler, dean of the College of Christian Ministries & Religion.
DMin courses will consist of a blend of live intensive, online and individually mentored course work. Students will meet for five five-day intensive sessions over the first two years of the program. The program will offer individualized contextual ministry courses, in which each student will be partnered with a faculty mentor to develop a project related to a ministry problem or opportunity in his or her ministry. This will happen in the second and third semester of the program. This work may be applied to the student’s culminating dissertation, which will be developed during the third year of the program.
“The DMin will give ministry leaders top-notch skills in reading and responding to cultural and church changes and challenges by innovative approaches to applying the unchanging truths of the Bible and the Gospel of Jesus Christ,” said Dr. Ehler. “DMin students will be given cutting-edge training in research, leadership, theology and spiritual formation.”
Applicants to this degree program must have earned a Master of Divinity (MDiv) degree or its equivalency. Applications to the program are now being accepted.
