A Transformative Degree.
Our Doctor of Ministry will do much more than simply adding two letters to the beginning of your name – it will transform the way you do ministry.
If you’re looking for a life-changing education that promotes empirical research, creative reflection and practical application to ministry, this is the program for you. Taught through the lens of scripture and focused on equipping ministers with the tools they need to think critically about the living out scripture and ministry, this DMin degree will empower you to lead in a whole new way.
Designed for students who have already earned their Master of Divinity (MDiv) degree, this program is well-suited for pastors, missionaries, para-church ministry leaders, teachers, and other Christian leaders looking for a way to heighten their professional development. Other benefits include:
“Crafting spiritually formed ministry leaders for an interconnected world.”
“Capital really understands how to integrate your study with people who are doing ministry in a high-paced and intensive environment. The combination of being part of a cohort, studying online and doing some intensives together is a really good balance. They really cracked the code in helping to integrate your study and the work with the ministry you are doing daily.”
