Purpose of the Doctor of Ministry Program
The Doctor of Ministry degree program is designed to provide advanced training in the practice of biblical and theologically oriented ministry to those actively involved in vocational or bi-vocational ministry.
Students have opportunity to learn from distinguished faculty coming into South Korea from U.S.A. and the best part of this program is that there is no need to stay in campus the whole time that the students are studying the D.Min course.
The D. Min. degree is the highest professional degree for those engaged in local church and para-church ministries, world missions, and similar ministries. The students will remain in ministry throughout the program and does not require them to relocate to the Campus.
How do D.Min. studies work?
We combine the best of adult learning ands professional ministry education. D.Min. studies are built on a foundation of biblical theology and ministry theory, but focus on practical aspects of ministry. While professors bring their expertise to the classroom, significant participation by the students is encouraged and learning is a collaborative process. D. Min. learning is intentionally relevant to ministry and life.
Before and after the resident portion of each course, the student will complete assignments. At the end of the entire D.Min. program, the student is required to do a Dissertation which implements and evaluates the ministry in the student’s particular context.

D.Min. Course Design
The D.Min. degree at Chil Chil Baptist College & Seminary is in ministry rather than in residence. You may find yourself at the Daegu, South Korea extension site only four weeks out of an entire year. This allows you to remain in your current ministry, incorporating your studies directly and immediately. Students complete relevant reading and assignments before and after a two week resident portion, which meets at the Daegu, South Korea extension site. The two week resident portion of the course normally shall occur in January and July.
|Pre-resident||April 15 – June||October 15 -December|
|Resident||July 1 – 15||January|
|Post resident||August – October 15||February- April 15|
The first commencement: 1st July – 15 July, 2017
During pre-residence, students prepare for the resident portion by reading assigned books and completing practical assignments. The resident portion is the week during which students meet together as a class with their professors. The postresident portion calls for the integration of the course content with the student’s ministry.
All Students are required to stay 2 weeks and earn 6 credit hours per semester. Whereas Teachers are required to stay only 1 week to teach a subject. Therefore, 2 teachers will be engaged to teach 2 subjects for every semester.
