Throughout the DMin program, you can gain the knowledge, personal insight, and the performance skills that deepen the spiritual and missional formation in your ministry practice. Opportunities for self-assessment and engagement with others are designed to strengthen your leadership skills and enhance your ability to empathize with others. As a result of our dynamic DMin program at Central Seminary, students can grow naturally into their next ministry roles. Many of our Doctor of Ministry students are already serving as ministers, chaplains, and other faith leaders. Throughout the program, they are able to apply the learning outcomes from their coursework in their current role as they learn. 

In the Doctor of Ministry focusing on Missional Church Studies program at Central Seminary, students will learn best-practice methodologies for strengthening congregational health that align with classical theological disciplines. Upon completion of the Doctor of Ministry program, students should also be able to apply research methods to effectively analyze various aspects of their ministry. The DMin program is not meant to be an “end” to your spiritual education, but a catalyst for continuous improvement. A primary focus of the program is to inspire personal, spiritual, and professional growth that is everlasting and unique to each individual.

The goal of the capstone project and dissertation process is to help you prepare for your next chapter in ministry. Throughout your education, you will work with instructors to develop the concept for your project, which will be based on your goals. Instructors will be there to provide guidance and mentorship as needed throughout the process.
