ACADEMIC PROGRAM DESCRIPTION AND OBJECTIVES
a.png

AEU's D.Min. is designed to equip ordained pastors and missionaries with a dynamic and effective pastoral/missional leadership in the contemporary postmodern world. To that end, this program provides the students with concrete ministerial knowledge and skills necessary for their ecclesial and missional ministry to flourish in the evolving cultural contexts of the contemporary world. The curriculum fosters orthopraxy in ever-newly evolving pastoral and missional settings while being deeply rooted in the evangelical tradition faithful to the Gospel of Christ. To accomplish this goal, students can choose between the several concentrations (40 units): for example, Missional Church Leadership, Ministry and Counseling, Mentoring and Coaching, and so forth.

 

(1) discover and affirm their God-granted ministerial gifts and visions and to envision a concrete road map of ministry.

 

(2) foster a vision of ministry rooted in the Bible and the evangelical tradition. (3) develop their unique tools that are employable for fruitful ministry in the 21st-century ecclesial and missional contexts. As a final project, they will have completed their work by publishing it as a book.
