Doctor of Ministry

Do you have substantial experience in ministry and an M.Div., M.Min., M.A.C.E. or M.T.S. degree? Then this may be the degree you want to pursue.

WE BUILD UPON PREVIOUS STUDIES AND MINISTERIAL EXPERIENCE TO PROVIDE YOU WITH STUDIES TO ACHIEVE GREATER LEADERSHIP COMPETENCY IN TODAY’S GLOBAL ENVIRONMENT.

Once you complete Laurel U’s Doctor of Ministry in Christian Leadership, you should demonstrate:

  • a keen understanding of leadership ability;
  • competencies of cultural/social settings analysis and determination of the leadership style best suited to that environment;
  • advanced understanding of the Bible and theological truth, and how this impacts modern leadership; and
  • a strong commitment to spiritual maturity, kingdom growth and passion for God.

Coursework is completed individually; however, periodically a cohort (made of students who start and finish together) meets with a professor for a couple of days of seminar-style classes. Cohorts have started in South Florida and the Greater Charlotte (NC) area. These face-to-face, adult cohorts become invaluable in establishing long-term ministry friendships to encourage, challenge and create accountability.
