    Southern Christian University offers the Doctor of Ministry degree program to qualified persons currently engaged in ministry. The Doctor of Ministry program builds on and extends previous theological education and experience. Students can use this degree to increase their general effectiveness or tailor their program toward a particular specialty.

    The purpose of this advanced level program is to help focus the efforts and develop the effectiveness of persons in ministry. The SCU program utilizes the candidate's own work setting as a primary learning resource. Much of the course work involves in-service projects of direct benefit to the candidate's ministry. The intent is to integrate these dimensions into a working totality for each minister. Integration at many levels is one of the important features of the program; of religion and contemporary life, or professional work and personal life, and of the knowledge of the disciplines such as: Scripture, theology, church history, and the practice of ministry.

    The program provides occasions for disciplined study, critical reflection, and evaluation on ministry issues.

    The Doctor of Ministry is distinguished from the Master of Divinity in that it demands a higher level of competence, more extensive analytical skills, and greater ability to do practical and thorough research related to ministry. The Doctor of Ministry is distinguished from a PhD or ThD in that it focuses specifically on excellence in practical ministry rather than academic research and languages.
