Doctor of Ministry at Tyndale

What People Are Saying

“This DMin program has been a great opportunity for personal and leadership reflection. I wanted to be sharpened and given practical tools in leadership. I got that. It has helped me to steward my gifts and perspectives more appropriately. The three years in the program have been three of the best years of my life.”

- Laird Crump, Director of Family Ministry, Focus on the Family Canada; Counsellor, Meadowbrook Counselling Associates, Toronto; Tyndale DMin graduate 2012.

“Tyndale’s DMin program has sown seeds in my life in a tremendous way. I loved being a student again, reading books and learning from our teachers. It was a multi-ethnic experience. The cohort and my peer group became close friends—we shared some of our burdens and joys, we prayed for each other, and we were proud as parents seeing what developed in each other lives.”

- Heike Geist; Teaching Faculty, Bienenberg Theological Seminary, Switzerland, Tyndale DMin graduate 2012.

“This program was fantastic, profound, empowering—and fit wonderfully with my ministry. I wanted something contextual and that was a strength of the program. It didn’t give me a prescriptive approach (‘7 steps to solve this problem’) but cultivated an attitude and built my capacity.”

 - Preston Pouteaux, Director of Discipleship Ministry, Lutheran Church of Our Saviour, Calgary, AB, Tyndale DMin graduate 2012.

“Tyndale’s DMin program has played an important role in bringing my leadership to the next level in the ministry and in the church. We are His people and we are called by God, and called together to witness the truth in the church and to be influences in the world. Tyndale’s DMin program is the way to achieve this.”

- Gloria Luk, Pastor Coach of Caring Ministry, Richmond Hill Community Church, DMin Graduate, 2012

“Tyndale’s DMin was very relevant to my present pastoral practice. It was not just theoretical. I enjoyed the small group interaction, the cohort’s diversity, talking with my advisor and the director. It helped me become more sensitive to the needs of the congregation, more aware of my own strengths and weaknesses, and gave me motivation to make some needed changes.”

- John Ng, Pastor, The Church Assembly in Toronto, Tyndale DMin graduate 2012.

"We have never had as much access to ministry and organizational leadership resources. However, we continue to flounder in our delivery. Tyndale Seminary's new Doctor of Ministry is designed to address this with a workable, integrated approach involving solid research, personal leadership formation, strategy development, and ministry execution that makes a difference. This programs deserves serious consideration for the Christian leader who wants to sharpen their saw."

- Michael B. Pawelke, Sr. Pastor, Compass Point Bible Church

"One of the purposes of the DMin degree program is to provide an opportunity for parish ministers to bring years of practice into focus in a disciplined, coherent program of advanced study and reflection. Tyndale has thoughtfully crafted a program that offers its students a variety of means to enhance professional skills in a dialogical process that integrates the advantages of the work setting with the resources of the academic community."

- Dr. Louis Charles Willard, Director, Accreditation and Institutional Evaluation, Association of Theological Schools (ATS)
