Doctor of Ministry

Ministry is more than understanding … it’s application.

At its core, ministry is the application of biblical truth to current culture and context. Develop a deeper understanding of ministry formation and growth through the Doctor of Ministry at Corban University. The Doctor of Ministry is meant to be completed while you are currently engaged in ministry. It will push you beyond mere reading of the latest philosophies and will require practical application of new concepts that are built on the truth of God’s Word.

Ministry must be relevant to be effective. To be relevant in today’s context, leaders need to practice ministry that is biblically-based and culturally-informed. Corban’s Doctor of Ministry program encourages you to reflect deeply and critically on your own ministry practice and context, providing you with tools to advance your understanding and practice of ministry. You will experience this by participating in small classes where leading scholars and ministry practitioners stretch your paradigms, update you on current issues, and provide accountability for implementing real changes in your ministry.
