The Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) degree program is designed to enhance the practice of ministry for persons holding the Master of Divinity (M.Div.) degree or its equivalent, and who are currently engaged in positions of Christian ministerial leadership. The program is practical in nature and is designed to heighten professional competency. Graduates will be equipped at a more advanced level of theological reflection and practice than that achieved in the foundational work of the M.Div. A program assumption is that the ministry of a local congregation or Christian ministry setting will provide the context for the course of study. D.Min. graduates contribute new insights to the body of ministerial praxis through practical field research and qualitative writing.
The first two WTS Graduate D.Min. projects were completed in 2002. In the years following fourteen additional projects have been completed. Each one addresses a unique ministry issue with quality research and writing. All but one of these has been published by ProQuest UMI, a professional publisher of academic dissertations. Each project is protected by U. S. copyright law and is available here as a reference for D. Min. students.
