Global Evangelism Track

“I don’t know that a global evangelism track is being done anywhere at the doctoral level…, quite honestly, not even being done at the masters level, globally.  And I know that, because I helped put the one together at Wheaton College… so this work is groundbreaking.
- Dr. Lon Allison, Wheaton Bible Church





Designed for those in full-time ministry, Multnomah’s Doctor of Ministry program allows you to earn your degree through a ten-day intensive held once a year with a cohort of students going through every course together for three years. In between intensives, online interaction led by faculty will reinforce what you are learning and build your cohort community.

The Global Evangelism cohort focuses on the strategic role of the evangelists in leading the church in fulfilling the Great Commission. Evangelists and those doing the work of evangelism in the global context require specialized training in our ever changing world.

Throughout the course of study the unique role of the evangelist will consistently be considered. Outcomes will focus on developing new strategies and methodologies in effective communication of the gospel, culturally relevant ways of engaging the church in evangelistic ministries, and strategic principles in building and sustaining evangelistic ministries. In an ever changing world evangelists are called to connect the gospel and the church in effective ways to those in need of a Relationship with Christ.

Under the direction of Dr. Tim Robnett, students will be exposed to various aspects of evangelism ministry with a thoroughly biblical foundation. Dr. Robnett is President of Tim Robnett Ministries, an adjunct professor at Multnomah Biblical Seminary, and co-authored Telling the Story, with Luis Palau.

Why Multnomah?

Experienced faculty mentors lead each track. You will study with faculty who are mentors in the respective ministry tracks they lead. In addition, guest lecturers are friends and ministry colleagues of your faculty mentor. Dr. Luis Palau will serve as senior lecturer and occasionally participate in teaching.

The Doctor of Ministry program offers an opportunity for advanced study and learning to expand your ministry reach and legacy. The culmination of the program is a final project that integrates course work with your ministry. Through this project, each doctoral candidate is provided an avenue for increasing their ministry impact.

We also offer an MA degree that shares the same core classes as the DMin program, a Master of Arts in Applied Theology (MAAT). This degree is designed for ministry leaders with significant ministry experience. Entrance into this degree program hinges primarily upon approval by the track supervisor, along with meeting the relevant admissions requirements. Contact the DMin program director, Derek Chinn at, for further details.
