Biblical Spirituality

The Doctor of Ministry and the Doctor of Educational Ministry in Biblical Spirituality is designed to equip pastors and other ministry leaders in the theology and practice of biblical spirituality.  The program of study emphasizes biblical spirituality in both its personal and interpersonal expressions, and examines this from both an historical and contemporary perspective.

Spiritual formation with a solid biblical foundation is pivotal for churches today. In a world of New Age religion and non-biblical responses to the question of spiritual formation, where can members in your local church turn for answers regarding spirituality?
