D.Min. General Information
LENGTH OF PROGRAM
The length of the program is three to six years. The Association of Theological Schools requires that Doctor of Ministry students take at least three years to complete the program. The student is expected to complete the program in six years unless an extension is granted for extenuating circumstances.
The seminary cannot provide housing for students, but provides information on where to learn about any available campus apartments and on motels with special negotiated rates. Since on campus housing is rather limited, any housing available on campus is for students only, not their families. Students accompanied by spouses and children will need to stay off campus.
Graduating students are expected to attend the graduation ceremonies in the spring. The vice president and academic dean will consider a petition not to attend when there are extenuating circumstances and participation in the graduation ceremonies would create a hardship for the student. All financial obligations to the seminary must be met prior to graduation. In order to graduate, faculty must determine that the student is theologically, psychologically, spiritually, morally and academically fit as a candidate for some phase of evangelical ministry. This is based on the student’s total D.Min. experience and a 3.0 G.P.A. The seminary understands the term “evangelical” to designate the theological position set forth in the Nation Association of Evangelicals’ statement of faith and interprets it in keeping with the historic confession of the Christian church.
