The Master of Divinity degree is designed to meet the needs of pastors or other full-time Christian workers, especially those who wish to improve their ability to study, understand, and proclaim the Word of God. It covers a traditional seminary curriculum including Biblical, Exegetical, Systematic, Historical, and Practical Theology. Students can choose from one of the following two emphases to focus their studies: Biblical Counseling or Biblical Studies. The Biblical Counseling emphasis offers rigorous and specialized training to prepare men and women for the ministry of biblical counseling. This emphasis is designed for pastors and other church leaders who seek to do a significant amount of counseling ministry. The Biblical Studies focus is on the study of scripture and theology. In this course of study, students engage in intensive biblical language study and explore theology, philosophy, and history in depth. Upon the completion of this program, graduates may work in marriage and family ministry, pastorate, missions, campus/collegiate ministries, biblical and theological studies, evangelism, doctoral studies, or teaching in a university or seminary. Program Learning Outcomes Graduates of this program will be able to: verbalize a general knowledge of the Bible, including a systematic understanding of the major books. evidence an understanding of the historical development of theology, and an ability to support their theological views and apply them to contemporary issues. demonstrate ability to do exegesis in the Hebrew and Greek texts of the Bible. evidence an understanding of the educational program of the local church and an awareness of the worldwide mission of the church. lead a local church or other group by means of biblical exposition, leadership skills, evangelism, and service. 51

Program Learning Outcomes Graduates of this program will be able to: demonstrate an advanced understanding and integration of ministry in relation to the biblical, theological, academic, and pastoral disciplines. articulate and apply a comprehensive and critical philosophy of ministry. demonstrate advanced competencies in the areas of critical thinking, research and writing, biblical theology, biblical counseling, Christian leadership, and pastoral care. plan, implement, and critically evaluate major undertakings in ministry toward the fulfillment of the Great Commission and the Great Commandment. evaluate personal, spiritual, and professional development, and design a plan for lifelong learning. make a contribution to the understanding and practice of ministry through the completion of a doctoral-level project. 53

Each course will be four days long. Classes will usually be held on four Mondays of each scheduled month from 9am to 5pm. 54

5 Ministry Research Project Graduate Program Students should give thought to the choice of the research project topic early in their program. Students must register for and complete a major research project on an approved subject. It must be directly related to the student s ministry, and it must make a significant contribution to the field of professional ministry, as well as to the student's personal life. The project should normally deal with some aspect of communication, administration, nurture, or Christian education. The research project proposal should state a thesis: what, exactly, does the research project propose to demonstrate or express? The research project proposal should then indicate the problem this demonstration would solve. The proposal should also provide schematic guidelines for developing and defending the principle thesis claims by chapters, anticipate methodological or other problems in the research project, and provide a select bibliography of primary and secondary sources. An optimum D.Min. research project length is 60,000 to 70,000 words. Three complete draft-copies of the research project must be submitted to the Director of the Doctoral Program by January 30 th (for May graduation) for review by the Examination Committee. The Examination Committee will decide whether the dissertation is ready for defense, and if it is, they will determine (before February 30 th ) the time for the defense. The research project must be successfully presented and defended in a face-toface oral examination (viva voce) before the Examination Committee at least thirty days prior to the anticipated graduation. The project writing must conform to the format and bibliographical style requirement in A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses, and Dissertations, by Kate L. Turabian (5th Edition, 1987). 55

6 Graduate Program Purpose Doctor of Theology Three year program: 54 credits and Dissertation Ten Core courses: 30 credits Eight Elective courses: 24 credits All Th.D. courses are 3 semester hours The three year program leading to the Doctor of Theology degree (Th.D.) is designed to prepare men and women for vocations of teaching and research and for the scholarly enhancement of Christian ministry. The ideals of the Th.D. encompass the view that the best tools for such vocations develop through training in Biblical Hermeneutics, Biblical Theology, Biblical History, and Biblical Exegesis. The curriculum is thus structured around these primary components based on the inerrancy, sufficiency, unity, and perspicuity of the scripture. Program Learning Outcomes Graduates of this program will be able to: do in-depth research in both primary and secondary sources related to theological studies. understand and critique the major issues in theological scholarship and the main views on those issues. complete a significant, scholarly dissertation that has practical value for the Christian community and the academic community. develop and employ a fully-formed Biblical Theology and Biblical Hermeneutics in all scholarly research. clearly articulate conservative Evangelical hermeneutics and theology in the dissertation and demonstrate skill in communicating that to the academic community. communicate effectively through one or more of the following: preaching, teaching, evangelism, and writing. develop scholarly research practices that are compatible with the objectives of the academy of professional scholars. develop skills and knowledge that will contribute to the vitality and strength of Evangelical scholarship and thus the Christian church. faithfully and honestly represent and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ in all scholarly endeavors and contexts. 56

8 Graduate Program Dissertation Research Project Students should give thought to the choice of the dissertation topic early in their program. Students must register for and complete a dissertation on an approved subject. The dissertation project should be on a subject giving evidence of the student s ability to do independent research and to think and write creatively. An optimum research dissertation length is 70,000 and 75,000 words. The dissertation proposal should state a thesis: what, exactly, does the dissertation propose to demonstrate or express? The dissertation proposal should then indicate the problem this demonstration would solve. The proposal should also provide schematic guidelines for developing and defending the principle thesis claims by chapters, anticipate methodological or other problems in the dissertation project, and provide a select bibliography of primary and secondary sources. Three complete draft-copies of the research dissertation must be submitted to the Director of the Doctoral Program by January 30 th (for May graduation).
