Contact Dr. Kathy McCallie regarding application deadlines.

Program Goals:

Graduates of the DMin program will be prepared to exercise advanced skills in church and society issues including abilities to:

  • Articulate an understanding of social change as a function of pastoral leadership that is grounded in theological and biblical reflection and responsive to the history of Christianity particularly as it is reflected in student’s own denominational heritage;
  • Identify and address cultural issues surrounding race, gender, economic and cultural globalization, and interfaith relations from a theological/biblical standpoint; and
  • Develop strategies for community engagement and change around particular issues of common concern.

 Usually people considering the program begin with these questions: 

 How will this strengthen
the church?

How much time will this take?
How much will this cost?
Educated clergy & laity leadership is a cornerstone of healthy, faithful congregational ministry. Continued learning with support & accountability enriches the spiritual & professional life of the student who brings learning home to local ministry settings.
Students are only required to come to campus two weeks in January & two weeks in June. Other work may be accomplished remotely via the Internet. The program usually takes approximately five years depending on how long students spend in the final project phase.
The total cost is roughly $13,000 paid over 5-6 years in the program. Costs vary depending on how many years a student spends in the program. Many students find financial support from their congregations or from members of congregations. Student loans may also be an option for some.


NEW: Graduate Diploma in Advanced Ministry Studies now available.  This is designed for students interested in post-MDiv theological and ministerial studies but who are not sure about completing an entire DMin degree.
