Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) Program

The Doctor of Ministry program offers an advanced-level curriculum combining the experiences of ministry with the academic resources of the seminary. As ministry is fundamentally theological in character, disciplined theological reflection is fostered as its root in all offices and functions.

The Doctor of Ministry Program aims to enable pastors to develop an integrated theology of ministry that embraces the total life and mission of the church. The specific goals of the Doctor of Ministry program at Wesley include acquainting students with current theological trends and issues, deepening the integration of discipline and ministry, and providing students with opportunities for establishing lasting collegial ties with other students.
