About Doctor of Ministry (DMin)

The vibrancy of the church in Canada and the world depends on effective leaders in all areas of ministry. Tyndale’s Doctor of Ministry (DMin) program is designed to improve your capacity and depth in your God-given vocation.

The program seeks to provide candidates with a collegial, academic and professional milieu in which you will advance your understanding of the nature, purposes, and practice of ministry; enhance your leadership and formational competencies in discernment, theological reflection, and in-ministry research; gain opportunities for personal and spiritual growth.

If you are interested in the DMin program, we encourage you to attend an Information Session. You can also register online to reserve your space.
