The Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) degree in biblical preaching arises from the central convictions that the living word of God changes lives, creates faith and motivates mission. Also, the proclamation of the gospel in Christian worship is a primary manifestation of the word of God in our midst and is central to the life and mission of the church. The program is intentionally biblical, practical, collegial and spiritual. The objective is to equip and train leaders who can bear compelling witness to Christ through sermons whose conception, design and delivery all stem from their engagement with the biblical witness.
Note: Luther Seminary is not currently accepting any new students into the D.Min. program.
A number of developments have precipitated this decision:
- Luther Seminary recently adopted a new academic calendar, which will include restructuring the D.Min. programs;
- Possible alignment of the Biblical Preaching and Congregational Mission and Leadership D.Min. programs;
- The need to address residential/online requirements; and
- Luther Seminary is in the process of a campus revisioning plan that will affect where and when residential focus session courses are held.
