Doctor of Ministry Degree

The Doctor of Ministry (DMin) Degree is an advanced, professional theological degree in which NTS takes to the highest level its mission to prepare women and men to be faithful and effective ministers of the Gospel, and to offer itself as a theological resource in service to the church.

The program is for ministers who have already earned an MDiv or who have (or are willing to work toward) an MDiv equivalency. It is professional in orientation, passionately committed to the integration of theory and practice. The DMin is designed for Christian ministers/pastors, chaplains, denominational executives, or staff specialists who desire to expand their capacity in their current roles.

For a quick overview of the program, Dr. Doug Hardy, Director of the DMin, shares a bit about the Doctor of Ministry.
