Southeastern's DMin program provides the essential tools to equip leaders in various contexts to strengthen their ministries and further develop them as leaders.

From Dr. Danny Akin

The Doctor of Ministry degree is one of the most effective means of ministry education available to those actively serving the Church who wish to gain further training for more effective service to the body of Christ. If you desire a mentoring relationship with an experienced professor and want to avail yourself of the encouragement of a cohort of likeminded ministers, this degree is for you. I am excited about the D.Min. program at Southeastern. That is why I personally teach in it each year, and that is why I also supervise and mentor students myself. I believe in this program, and I am convinced that you will become a believer as well as you work your way through the excellent program of study, write a ministry project that will be relevant to your ministry assignment and graduate better equipped to minister to God's people.

What can you expect?

An outstanding faculty (world class professors and expert ministry practitioners), convenient course schedules (only 4 trips to campus or fully online), cohort learning environments, a challenging and practical curriculum, an excellent mentoring plan, servant-driven administration, and a competitive tuition plan.
