Doctor of Ministry: Strengthening Ministry in the Kingdom of God
The Strengthening Ministry in the Kingdom of God program is for those who minister to and pastor the people of God and have earned a Master of Divinity degree or an equivalent degree involving three years of post-graduate study in the theological disciplines, including the Biblical languages, and who have at least three years of ministry experience after earning that degree. These are the only requirements for the Strengthening Counseling Ministry concentration. For an individual to be admitted to the Strengthening Pastoral Ministry concentration the applicant must be an ordained minister in addition to the above requirements.*
Master of Divinity
An individual may be admitted to the Seminary in the Master of Divinity program on
presentation of an academic transcript giving evidence of successfully completing
requirements for a bachelor’s degree or its equivalent.*
Master of Theological Studies
The bachelor’s degree, or its equivalent, is required for those men and women seeking our academic degree, the Master of Theological Studies (M.T.S.).
Diploma and Certificate Programs
An individual may be admitted to the diploma or certificate programs without completing a
bachelor’s degree, but must submit official transcripts of all undergraduate work attempted.
An individual may be admitted as a special student (e.g., not enrolled in a specific program
but taking courses for credit) without completing a bachelor’s degree, but must submit
official transcripts of all undergraduate work attempted.

Strengthening Pastoral Ministry concentration, are restricted to men.
