The Doctor of Educational Ministry degree program is designed to enhance the service of those actively involved in vocational or bi-vocational educational ministry by providing advanced training in the practice of biblically and theologically oriented educational ministry.

The Doctor of Educational Ministry (DEdMin) program helps Christian educators develop the biblical rationale, sociological strategy, and practical implementation of their ministry through group-based cohorts or individualized study.


Generally, you need three years of ministry experience and a DTS MACE or equivalent degree to begin your Doctor of Educational Ministry (DEdMin).

Cohort Emphases

The Doctor of Educational Ministry program follows a model in which students, in consultation with their advisor, customize their degree plan around individual ministry needs and goals. In the cohort model, students proceed through the courses necessary for their emphasis with a small group of ministry colleagues.
