DMin - Doctor of Ministry Degree Program


Doctor of Ministry Program

Our DMin Curriculum

Beulah Heights University’s DMin curriculum focuses on equipping leaders to meet the challenges of leading in a Post-Christendom context. The curriculum design encourages ongoing spiritual formation, an ability to think critically about issues confronting our world, a devoted Christian lifestyle, and an active engagement of scholarship and ministry practice. Through a hybrid based and online instructional learning model, program competencies are taught through classroom instruction and synchronous and asynchronous learning using digital education platforms. Students complete a context and action research-based dissertation/ministry project, which will reflect the strategic work and learning the student encountered during the program.

How Can I Use This Degree?

Persons who earn the BHU DMin degree (depending on the degree track) are credentialed and trained to serve in several ministry professional areas; Church Ministry, Chaplaincy, Para-church ministries, Higher-education/Seminary Faculty, Advocacy, Entrepreneurship, Conflict Resolution Specialist, etc.

What is the Focus?

The DMin Program focuses on equipping ministry professionals for leadership in traditional and non-traditional ministry contexts through a combination of practicum and scholarship. Through an emphasis on formation, candidates will focus on mastering critical skills and thinking biblically about the many challenges facing the local community and world. The DMin Program engages a hybrid learning model, a blend of face-to-face instruction, and technological learning tools. The DMin project and dissertation is the culmination of the program and demonstrates the development of essential ministry skills and personal transformation.

What Will I Study in This Program?

The classes are written in a 15-week format and are hosted primarily through digital learning platforms. All DMin core classes have a one-week residency component during week eight. There exists the potential for residency weeks to be hosted at off-site locations. Non-residential students are those who elect to enroll in the program exclusively online and may include students local to BHU’s main campus, out of state, and international.
