The Doctor of Ministry in Missional Effectiveness is designed for pastors, church planters, parachurch leaders, and non-profit Christian leaders. Students will examine the biblical foundations of a missional model, engage with contemporary scholarship on global leadership, and learn from practitioners who have been effectively transforming the culture where they live and serve. While developing the skills necessary to reach those without faith, students will also learn to raise up other leaders to partner with them in their missional efforts.
