DMin Academic Catalog: About Denver Seminary
Denver Seminary is a Bible-based evangelical seminary committed to training students to be effective ministry leaders who live what they teach. Denver Seminary’s Doctor of Ministry degree was first offered in 1976. Denver Seminary is accredited by both The Association of Theological Schools and The North Central Association of Schools and Colleges.
The Doctor of Ministry degree is an applicational degree. Students learn how to apply knowledge effectively in their ministry. Men and women in ministry improve their skills and enlarge their vision in order to be effective in ministry at the doctoral level. Research is carried through to action. Theological and theoretical study is demanding , but the application of that study is much more demanding. People don’t want leaders who only know the truth, but those who can also apply it effectively to help others successfully move forward. Effectiveness in ministry is the goal.
Advantages of Denver Seminary’s Program:
Denver Seminary prepares men and women to engage the needs of the world with the redemptive power of the gospel and the life-changing truth of Scripture. Through our educational programs and mentoring process the seminary challenges students to grow spiritually, intellectually, and professionally in order to lead God’s people in the accomplishment of His mission in the world. Knowing, being, and doing are all part of leading. Leaders mobilize ministry by using strengths God has given them. They glorify God by using his gifts.
Both resident and visiting faculty are regarded as among the best in their respective fields.

An Integrated Program
One student’s experience: “Denver Seminary integrates the "knowing," "being" and "doing" into the entire curriculum. I was not looking for another theological/ministry degree, but for an institution that deeply fosters and integrates head knowledge with the day to day ministry experience. I am glad to say that I found Denver Seminary the best place that offers what I was looking for.”
