The Doctor of Ministry Leadership Track provides an intentional and structured development process for Christian leaders. With our faculty of proven leaders and educators, you will investigate relevant issues such as church leadership principles, dynamics of change, and professional formation. Your learning will take place in a collaborative format, offering opportunities for small group learning, peer-to-peer feedback and lifelong relationships. You will identify opportunities in church ministry within an action research framework and implement a ministry-based project. Reflect on this experience with your professors and peers while developing your own unique vision for ministry and leadership.
You will journey through the DMin program with professors and colleagues who will support you along the way. There is a high level of collaboration in the classroom and online. Your colleagues will work with you in small groups where you will receive peer-to-peer feedback and develop relationships that can last a lifetime.
Theory and Practice
Today’s effective leaders must have a sound academic foundation and the skills to put theory into practice. The DMin program gives you both. You will take a ministry project from concept to implementation within an action research framework. Tyndale DMin students have created strategies to move a congregation in a missional direction, designed curriculum for Christian schools and developed a holistic caring ministry in a church setting. You will develop a vision for your own project.
