Discipleship and Mentoring

The EdD in Discipleship and Mentoring is a terminal degree program that prepares students to develop others who are called to serve through discipleship and mentoring. Students in this program will develop the skills to teach in the local church and in higher education, problem solve using social science research techniques, and influence thinking in this field through writing that is both biblical and academically persuasive. In this program, you’ll learn from pastors and missionaries who have a passion for making disciples and building up others in Christ. Students will be equipped for ministry with a better understanding of the biblical and theological foundations for missional disciple-making and the methodologies for effective mentoring.
