Doctor of Ministry – Biblical Preaching and Teaching

Doctor of Ministry – Biblical Preaching and Teaching

The Biblical Preaching and Teaching track is uniquely designed to equip pastors in the art of preaching and teaching. The Apostle Paul challenged Timothy to devote himself to developing his pastoral gifts so that everyone would see his progress (1 Timothy 4:15). Our program seeks to do that by combining the best of the newest technology and the best of the old tradition of sound, biblical preaching. It will strengthen a pastor’s understanding of Scripture and enrich their preaching by enhancing their exegetical skills and deepening their understanding of exegetical theory and methodology.

DMin Degree Learning Outcomes

A graduate in the Biblical Preaching and Teaching Track will be capable of:

  • Articulate the Gospel message of salvation by grace through faith in Christ alone.

  • Explain the inspiration and authority of all of scripture and its relationship to the Gospel.

  • Articulate the relationship of the gospel to sanctification in the life of the believer.

  • Articulate a Christocentric view of ministry in which theological study, practice, and ethical conduct mutually inform and enhance one other.

FINAL PROJECT

The purpose of the Major Project is to demonstrate the student’s ability to integrate the academic content of the Doctor of Ministry program with the nature and practice of ministry for the purposes of enhancing the personal practice of ministry.

Each project will address a specific ministerial concern and clearly demonstrate—and be assessed according to—the following characteristics:

  • Excellent research including…
  1. an organized, coherent, and effective research methodology.
  2. sufficient resources to demonstrate advanced competency of the depth and breadth of the topic being addressed.
  3. clear, informed, and objective assessment of the research results from a theological and practical point of view.
  • Both a personal and public rationale
  • Both theoretical/theological and practical considerations that are clearly described and integrated
  • Practical application that contributes meaningfully to the personal practice of ministry

These should culminate in a significant contribution to the practice of ministry in the intended community of the church.

“I can’t say enough about the blessing Knox Seminary has been in my life.  The classes have been informative, challenging and thought provoking, particularly Christ Centered Preaching with Dr. Bryan Chapell.  What a change his teaching brought into my ministry!  The seminary is affordable and they work hard trying to help on the financial end of the educational challenge.  I highly recommend Knox Theological Seminary for a quality and affordable education that will enhance and stretch one’s ministry.”
