The Doctor of Ministry program at McAfee School of Theology, Mercer University

The purpose of the Doctor of Ministry Degree at McAfee School of Theology is to provide a level of knowledge, theoretical clarity, and competence of practice commensurate with the highest earned degree for the profession and practice of ministry. The D.Min. will help you further your skills in ministry and provide you with the kind of learning experience that you will value throughout your lifetime.

McAfee School of Theology's program invites ministers, denominational leaders, and persons in a variety of ministries to join with colleagues in working for excellence in ministerial leadership by:
  • Manifesting the unity and interrelatedness of theory and practice.
  • Emphasizing collegial learning with professors and peers.
  • Intense study in a variety of subjects designed and taught by experienced faculty.
  • Providing a content-rich Ministry Coaching experience with the encouragement of an accomplished minister in an area of your ministry emphasis and interaction with a faculty supervisor.
  • Writing a final project thesis that makes a unique contribution to a particular aspect of ministry and enhancing your practice of ministry.

McAfee’s approach to the seminary experience incorporates the concepts of "knowing," "being," and "doing."  Since our inception, our commitment has been to engage in the process of integrating essential knowledge with the spiritual development and practical experiences necessary for ministry.  You will find our Mission and Founding Principles and Frequently Asked Questions helpful as well as reviewing the Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry courses of study .
