In-person residency no longer required

Doctor of Ministry Now Offered Fully Online

The Doctor of Ministry  (D.Min.) degree can now be pursued fully online at Northeastern Seminary. 

Previously, the hybrid program required a residency in Rochester, New York. Starting this fall, there is no residency requirement.

At Northeastern Seminary, the online D.Min. degree consists of 34 credits and can be earned in as few as three years. In addition, Northeastern offers flexible part-time options which allow students to alter their class load based on their schedule and time commitments. The doctorate provides opportunities for you to engage the issues that confront the faith community, re-tool your ministry practice, and revitalize your spiritual life. The program culminates in a dissertation, allowing students to incorporate components of their classwork in Leadership, Scripture, and Spiritual Formation. The dissertation will be a publishable document that utilizes theoretical and theological resources to address both the nature and practice of ministry.

This year's presentations include:

  • A Gospel that Still Reaches African-American Urban Communities
  • Missional Ministry in a Multiethnic Church: A Case Study of Grace Point Alliance Church
  • Spiritual Coping among Emergency Department Nurses
