Why Choose Trinity's Doctor of Ministry?

What is the Focus

Our focus is to help you develop advanced ministry skills, strategies, and theology for solving problems and building Christ-honoring ministries. The DMin at TEDS is an in-service program, enabling you to complete the degree while taking minimal time away. As such, it will deepen your current vocation and ministry skills.

Flexible

Course content is delivered in person, remotely, in blended formats and in contextualized field work. On campus courses will be offered primarily during spring break in March, and during the last two weeks of July each year.

Program Outcomes

  1. In an effort to meet the needs of students ministering in post-Christendom environments and in pluralistic cultures, TEDS offers a doctoral program that is theologically grounded, ministry specific, flexible, contextual, affordable, research-based, and missionally driven. Regular interaction and mentoring by our world-renowned faculty and field experts will help you successfully complete the program.
  2. Practice INTENTIONAL THEOLOGICAL INTEGRATION evidenced by the ability to effectively engage one’s cultural context with advanced theological acumen and critical thinking.
  3. Engage in IN-DEPTH CONTEXTUAL ANALYSIS demonstrating the ability to identify and frame crucial ministry issues and outline potential solutions.
  4. Utilize INNOVATIVE STRATEGIC PLANNING evidenced by the ability to create and develop key ministry initiatives and achieve desired ministry goals.

Ministry Project

TEDS DMin is experienced in a 3-Phase, 4-year program delivered in a hybrid model, where credits are earned in the classroom, in independent Guided Research and from demonstrated competencies. Your Ministry Project is not a final paper, but rather the culmination of the strategic work and learning you do along the way, resulting in the renewal of your local ministry throughout the entire program.
phil testimonial

The DMin has been a perfect complement to my MDiv. TEDS surrounded me with seasoned, yet humble, Christian mentors who are passionate about sharing the wisdom God has given to them. I’m particularly thankful for how they introduced me to vast fields of study, but always with a framework shaped by a biblical worldview.
