Capital Seminary and Graduate School, the graduate division of Lancaster Bible College, is set to launch a new chaplaincy concentration in the doctor of ministry program this fall. LBC | Capital’s doctor of ministry is a practice-oriented program designed for Christian leaders in vocational ministry who desire to serve as a chaplain in the military, schools, universities, hospitals, prisons and more.

The chaplaincy studies concentration focuses on teaching holistic Christian care. It offers students practical training in addiction counseling and care, marriage and family issues, pastoral care and counseling in grief, loss and crisis. LBC | Capital’s doctor of ministry program is offered in a unique format that blends face-to-face learning with online coursework. Using this unique learning system, students meet for three 6-day intensive sessions over the first year of the program. The program offers individualized contextual ministry courses, where each student will partnered with a faculty mentor to develop a project related to a ministry problem or opportunity in his or her ministry.

The program is led by a diverse faculty of experienced chaplains and ministers, including Dr. Michael A. Milton, the former president-chancellor of Reformed Theological Seminary, and Dr. John C. Weatley, an LBC | Capital alumnus, experienced Army chaplain and ordained minister of the United Methodist Church.

“The need for deeply studied, deeply caring chaplains in Christian ministry is immense,” said Dr. Doug Kegarise, the recipient of the college’s first-ever doctoral degree and now director of the doctor of ministry program at LBC | Capital. “We’re thrilled to be able to expand our program to offer this new concentration to directly address those needs.”
