Doctor of Ministry in Global Church-Based Theological Education

The Doctor of Ministry degree (D.Min.) in Global Church-Based Theological Education (GCBTE) is granted for demonstration of competencies associated with being a minister of the gospel (pastor, church planter, missionary) and other ministry leaders who are situated to have significant influence in formal or informal church networks.


The general objectives of all Antioch School programs are:

  • Comprehensive development in character, skills, and knowledge for effective ministry.
  • Life development and lifelong learning orientation.
  • Recognition of and participation in the centrality of the local church in the plan of God.
  • Ability to master biblical content, benefit from significant contributions of scholars, and build strategic models of ministry accordingly.

The general objective of Ministry degrees is to help train those who desire to be part of a leadership and ministry team that is one-minded in ministry vision and philosophy. Out of this team would come those who commit themselves long term to local church leadership or those who desire to train to be part of a missionary team involved in planting or establishing churches in other areas.


Specific program objectives of the D.Min. in GCBTE include:

  • Identify and address paradigm-level issues in theological education, doing theology, hermeneutics, missions, and Christian education.
  • Build biblical philosophy in each of these areas.
  • Construct and evaluate strategic models and tools that integrate biblical philosophy with contemporary ministry situations.
