Strategic Leadership students will consider topics like: Defining and Communicating Vision; Authentic, Transformational, and Servant Leadership; Innovation and Change; and Strategic Initiatives and Partnerships.

Doctor of Ministry

The Doctor of Ministry (DMin) degree is a terminal professional doctorate that provides the opportunity for post-Master of Divinity (MDiv) education to pastors, missionaries, para-church ministry leaders, teachers, and other Christian leaders as a means to heightened professional development. The DMin at Capital Seminary and Graduate School is built on several post-masters certificates and adds the element of practical research and application. The delivery of the program does not require full-time residency for students. Through blended learning, ministry professionals are able to pursue intensive advanced study while remaining employed on a full-time basis in their vocational settings. Generally, the degree serves people who have earned the MDiv degree, are ordained, and are currently serving as associate or senior pastors, or as executives of church-related or other Christian institutions.
