Doctor of Ministry – Theological Exegesis

The Theological Exegesis track is uniquely designed to equip pastors in the art of theological exegesis of the Bible. The track fosters an appreciation for reading of the Bible that is canonical, creedal, and contextual. Students learn how to draw on the rich history of exegetical theology for the sake of interpreting the Bible for the church today.

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.
