Doctor of Ministry Degree Online

“Through love serve one another.” That is the heart of ministry. The Spirit will express His loving service in a multitude of ways through each of us according to the unique manner in which He has created and shaped us.

Did you know that the word “minister” has two very special meanings, both of which help us understand our calling? First, a “minister” is “one who acts upon the authority of another.” Do you desire to act upon His authority by hearing His specific instructions to you?


The other meaning of “minister” is “servant.” Each of has received different gifts and our ministry is to use those gifts to serve one another. Do you want to use all of your gifts the way the Lord wants you to?

If so, then a Doctorate in Ministry from Christian Leadership University is exactly what you’ve been searching for.

You have been a willing servant of the Lord for an admirable portion of your life. You’ve led when you felt called to lead, and selflessly served whenever a need arose. You have cared for the broken, and helped to raise up leaders for the Kingdom of God.

Certainly you are no stranger to hearing that “still, small voice.” You’ve felt the call of God on your life to enter into the Ministry, and you’ve sensed His gentle guidance as you endeavored to follow His perfect will for your life. But have you ever wished you could focus in on His voice more accurately?
