CGST : D.Min. in Transformational Leadership
Doctor of Ministry (DMin). The Doctor of Ministry in Transformational Leadership for the Global City degree program is designed to enhance the leadership skills of individuals engaged in Christian ministry, particularly in an urban context. The degree is appropriate for pastors, para-church leaders, urban ministry leaders, educators, and mission leaders.
The Doctor of Ministry program at Bakke Graduate University (Seattle, Washington) is offered in partnership with the Graduate School. It is distinct from the Doctor of Philosophy or Doctor of Theology in that its primary focus is on reflective practice and practical application. This degree program not only complements the Graduate School’s program of Christian higher education, it also enhances the School’s Mission of effectively ‘strengthening the Church and transforming society’.
Students working toward the typical Doctor of Ministry degree will complete 40 semester credit hours by completing all course work and a dissertation.
Doctor of Ministry courses are multi-modal courses, augmented by face-to-face intensives and an online and/or telephone conference element.
