Word of Welcome

Rob NashThank you for exploring the Doctor of Ministry degree at Mercer University's McAfee School of Theology. You are invited to communicate with us the ways in which your ministry may be enhanced by academic study integrated with your calling and practice of ministry.  We are ministry-centered and student-focused.

If you are involved in full-time ministry and desire a program that provides opportunities of collegial learning with exceptional faculty, opportunities for experiential learning, and study with peers in ministry, I invite you to explore the options of McAfee’s D.Min. degree.

The faculty of McAfee is committed to a program that emphasizes the best in Biblical, theological and practical scholarship with flexibility in design that allows for successful study and ministry practice. If you can spend eleven weeks in intense study on campus over three years, are willing to engage in creative research on the areas of ministry that fit your interests and needs, and are challenged by implementing well-researched initiatives in ministry reported in a written Project Thesis, please call or write to us. Let us share with you how your interests in Christian Spirituality, Justice and Peacemaking, Leadership and Ministry, Mission and Community Transformation, Pastoral Care/Chaplaincy, Preaching, Scripture and the Life of the Church, and Theology/Christian Worship can be enhanced at McAfee.

One of the significant values of the McAfee community since it founding in 1996 is an “open door” policy of accessibility between faculty and students. We think you will find that same value available to you as a D. Min. student. So, call or e-mail our office.

Contact the Admissions Office at (888) 471-9922 to learn more about the structure of the program and completing the application for admission. We hope you will take a moment to get to know us and let us get to know you.
