EMPOWERING FAITHFUL CHRISTIAN LEADERS for every generation, culture, and community.
Greetings from Carey Theological College!
We are a school leading the way in globally-informed theological education. Our Doctor of Ministry studies is based on solid evangelical, biblical, and theological foundations, and will hold you to rigorous academic standards while challenging you to think and act with faithfulness towards God's world. We have arranged world-class faculty to facilitate your ministry research as you interact with peers representing diverse cultures and backgrounds. Carey's beautiful campus facilities are cradled in the midst of the University of British Columbia, one of the world’s best universities. Through our interactive online courses and mentorship learning model, you can choose to study from anywhere in the world or join us in person!
Our vision is to see you flourish as a Christian leader for your generation, your culture, and your community.
If you sense that God is urging you to grow deeper into ministry, we’d love to speak with you. Get in touch to see how we can build a course of studies tailored to your unique needs.
PART-TIME STUDY DURATION
As a DMin student, you may select a stream of emphasis for Stages Two and Three of the program. The streams will be taught as individual- or group-directed studies, and students will also participate in online peer seminars, facilitated by a faculty member.
Preaching and Worship
Global Christianity and Cross-cultural Ministries
The Administrative Ministries Stream is designed to equip those who are called to various forms of leadership in the churches and parachurch organization in senior administrative positions.
Emerging Congregational Ministry
The Emerging Congregational Ministry Stream is designed to equip students to conduct congregational analyses, compare various models of congregational life, and contextualize emerging churches. Of particular interest are women in leadership roles, the ministry and mission of the whole people of God, and the dynamics of religious voluntarism.
We believe that faithful Christian leaders must be able to thoughtfully integrate theology, mission, and ministry.
Through the Doctor of Ministry program, our faculty is committed to helping you become more:
... faithful and joyful in your ministry.
... thoughtful and intentional in how you allow theological concerns to inform matters in the real world.
... encouraged and hopeful as you pursue your vocational fit.
The D.Min. program is embedded into the life of the church and is best suited to students who are able to regularly act and reflect in the context of a ministry setting. It is normally only offered to those who will be in active ministry roles for the duration of the program.
Peter Ahn - Carey D.Min Student, Pastor of Living Hope Fellowship
The D.Min Program helped me in two ways; to renew myself and promote my spirituality, and to recheck my theology of ministry and expand my thoughts through discussion with teachers and classmates. I highly recommend the D.Min. program at Carey to anyone looking to further their knowledge in ministry.
