For over 75 years, Multnomah has been dedicated to equipping, training and preparing men and women to minister to God’s people and the world. The Doctor of Ministry program continues this commitment by offering experienced ministry leaders advanced theological education.

In June 2013, the Seminary plans to launch its first two cohorts for its new DMin program. The two cohorts starting this coming summer are Cultural Engagement and Missional Leadership led by Dr. Paul Metzger and Dr. Rick McKinley, respectively.

Advancing God's Kingdom

We are excited about this program because it broadens Multnomah’s ability to serve God’s people and advance His Kingdom. The DMin program is designed for leaders in full-time ministry, and allows them to explore further where God has placed them. Students pursuing this degree will sharpen their ministry skills, deepen their understanding of Scripture and ministry, and gain more tools for leading their team and/or people.

The program also plans to launch a track in Global Evangelism in early 2014 led by Dr. Tim Robnett, with Dr. Luis Palau serving as a senior lecturer. In June 2014, a ministry track called Worship in the Matrix of Community, Communication, and Culture will be overseen by Dr. Robb Redman.

Doctor of Ministry Distinctives

  • Faculty mentors oversee each track – resident faculty lead and teach each cohort.
  • Adjunct faculty and guest instructors are colleagues and friends of the faculty mentors. Students participate in the relational and ministry network of their faculty mentor.
  • The bulk of the courses are devoted to their field of study – 100% of their in-class curriculum and over 95% of their total courses.
  • We are offering a parallel degree, an MA in Applied Theology that shares the core courses with the DMin program.

If you want to find out more about the DMin program, visit our page at the Multnomah website. If you or someone you know  are interested in this degree, please feel free to contact the program director, Dr. Derek Chinn,  at

Prayer for New Programs

We are asking that you pray for us during this process, that students would apply, and for our program’s Kingdom impact. We are passionate about providing quality, advanced theological education to those God has called to vocational ministry, and this is a new season for Multnomah to be able to serve His people with this program.
