The program is delivered in a fully online format and can be completed in as few as three years.

“We are delighted to expand our doctorate portfolio by offering the Doctor of Ministry program through our online platform,” said South College Chancellor Steve South. “The variety of opportunities for ministry leaders is diverse, and we offer a climate to foster development across multiple groups from worship leaders to youth pastors. This program fits within our mission of preparing individuals for or to advance in careers.”

The program is designed for individuals already involved in ministry who want to move to the next level of leadership. It is offered in an accelerated format and includes a Master of Arts in Ministry Studies. The format makes it more affordable and achievable for students. The program is headed by Professor and Director of Ministry Programs for South College, Dr. Robert R. Redman Jr.

“South College has always been a good neighbor,” Redman said. “We want to give back to communities where our ministry members live by developing DMin students to be reflective practitioners and then help them become effective leaders and mentors to those they serve. The flexible online format reflects the need of a sector. Now is the best time to offer innovative, stable and sustainable solutions.”
