The Doctor of Ministry concentration in Transformational Preaching, is designed for doctoral candidates who will become intensely familiar with their own pulpit hermeneutic, cross-cultural homiletical traditions, and methods. Ultimately, students research and develop a hermeneutic of preaching that transforms lives within and beyond their ministry.
NBTS’s Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) program immerses pastors, chaplains, and leaders in a rigorous and creative theological environment. Small class size, hybrid-learning environment, mentoring with distinguished faculty, and emphasis on generating innovative and rigorous doctoral theses make NBTS’s D.Min. program an ideal choice for leaders who desire to advance their theological training and transform their communities through powerful preaching.
