Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.)
The Doctor of Ministry in Biblical Counseling is a 39 semester hour program. The program concentrates heavily upon practical biblical counseling courses that prepare the Christian leader to conduct practical and helpful counseling sessions under the umbrella of the local church. Key theological doctrines are also presented to aid the student in understanding the doctrinal implications of proper biblical counseling, and a small collection of Bible books are included that are relevant to the Christian’s relationship to the Law, the return of Christ, and fellowship with a Holy God.
The Doctor of Ministry in Biblical Counseling does not require language work or a doctoral dissertation. Coursework primarily consist of lecture-based teachings, with a variety of professors presenting practical information for those Christian leaders who desire to offer faith-based counseling under the auspices of the local church. Students will be challenged to think more deeply about the Word of God than ever before. Most courses will test the student’s grasp of the course material through traditional final exams. Upon completion of the program, students will have ample training to conduct counseling sessions in the local church. For students who wish to offer Christian counseling as a professional service, the D.Min. in Christian Counseling is preferred.
The Doctor of Ministry (Biblical Counseling) program is an advance-at-your-own-pace program. Most students will complete the program in five to six semesters.
