DMin Program Design and Features

The DMin program is designed for in-service ministers, with the goal of personal transformation because we believe that the leader's interior life is the starting point for expanded ministry influence. With its uniquely Pentecostal perspective, the program also distinctly emphasizes Spirit-empowered ministry framed in a global context. Courses are taught in one-week modules to fit your full-time ministry lifestyle. Relocating is not necessary, and you need only travel to Springfield 3 times per year (February, June and October when modules are offered).The program is also designed around the cohort experience, which provides the opportunity for learning and growth to occur through the bonds formed in diverse small group relationships. New cohorts begin each year. The program consists of nine modules, plus a professional project:

4 Core Courses (12 credits)

  • Core 1—Renewing the Spiritual Leader
  • Core 2—Biblical Theology of Ministry
  • Core 3—Pentecostal Ministry in the 21st Century
  • Core 4—Leading Christian Organizations

4 Elective Courses (12 credits) (see available concentrations)

Professional Project (6 credits)

  • Project Design Course
  • Project Development and Presentation

Although the program takes approximately four years to complete, the benefits begin on the first day!
