A doctor of ministry is the go-to degree for people already ministering at churches and on the mission field. DMin curricula include lots of lengthy written assignments, stacks and stacks of expensive textbooks, and plenty of academic exercises.
But Does Academic Work Carry Over into Ministry?
You’ll spend weeks, quarters, or semesters perfecting one project in seminary. You’ll also have a heads-up on projects and assignments in your syllabus and the structure of a classroom to help you prepare for tests and papers.
You don’t get that kind of leeway in ministry.
You need biblical answers now. You need to dig into the Scriptures, research current issues, and disciple people in God’s truth. You need a foundation of sound theology and immediate access to Christian information.
A traditional DMin program takes care of the theology part, but it doesn’t give you the tools to find answers now. In real-life ministry, you don’t have semesters on end to research what the Bible says on a given topic; you need answers by Sunday morning, by this week’s staff meeting, or by the end of this conversation.
So We Made a DMin That Uses Logos!
Knox Theological Seminary and Logos Bible Software have crafted a DMin in Preaching and Teaching that prepares you for today’s fast-paced, high-tech ministry environment. It’ll enrich and deepen your preaching and teaching with theological training from some of the world’s foremost Bible scholars:
- Dr. Bruce K. Waltke, author of An Old Testament Theology
- Dr. Haddon Robinson, one of Christianity Today’s “Top 25 Most Influential Preachers”
- Dr. Sam Lamerson, professor of New Testament and pastor of 16 years
- Dr. Warren A. Gage, professor of Old Testament and Chair of Christianity and Culture
And many of the textbooks you need to get your doctor of ministry are included in your very own Logos 4: Portfolio Edition. No kidding, people: your own Portfolio—our largest base package—is included in the price!
