The Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) program is intended for persons who are actively engaged in full-time Christian ministry. It is advanced seminary work beyond the M.Div. degree. The main purpose is to enhance the participant’s personal growth towards maturity and professional competence in the practice of ministry. The D.Min. program is committed to maintaining high academic standards and to building ministry on a solid biblical and theological foundation. The APTS D.Min. program focuses on Pentecostal/Charismatic ministries. It deals with the issues facing Pentecostal/Charismatic ministries in Asia today. Its three-year program consists of two years of course work (in modules) and a one-year research writing project while continuing with one’s full-time ministry. Participants need to come to the Baguio campus twice (four weeks each) a year for two years to complete their course work, and for at least six weeks during the research writing year. The D.Min. program requires a total of 30 credit hours: five core courses, three electives, a final research project and a comprehensive exam. The maximum time for completing the program is five years.
