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.


Corban School of Ministry purposefully keeps tuition costs down so that you can afford the seminary training you need. We recognize that ministry professionals are looking for options that allow them to manage their financial resources well. The Doctor of Ministry can be completed for under $100 per month when you use the Church Matching Scholarship and Corban’s payment plan.
