D.Min. Admission: Requirements

Admission Requirements

There are four basic criteria that define eligibility for the program:

  • Degree: an accredited M.Div. or its equivalent (72 accredited graduate hours within certain broad distribution requirements). See M.Div. Equivalency
  • Grades: a minimum cumulative GPA in accredited graduate study of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale
  • Experience: at least three years of full-time ministry following completion of the first professional master’s degree
  • Vocation: currently involved in full-time ministry context (e.g., pastor, missionary, teacher, denominational or para-church leader, chaplain, evangelist, counselor, etc.)

If you do not hold an M.Div. contact the D.Min. Team (dmin@agts.edu) for an M.Div. Equivalency Evaluation, and see the FasTrak page, the pre-doctoral experience at AGTS that can bring an MA holder to D.Min. eligibility in half the time.

Applicants to the program are not required to have taken biblical languages.
