In a world that is becoming increasingly diverse, skeptical of the church, and even post-Christian, pastors, church planters, parachurch leaders, and non-profit Christian leaders will need to develop and refine the leadership skills necessary to reach those without faith and raise up other leaders to partner with them in their missional efforts. This Doctor of Ministry program engages the biblical foundations of a missional model and contemporary scholarship on global leadership with practitioners who have been effectively transforming the culture where they live and serve.
