Earn a Doctor of Ministry Degree

Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, with Dr. Charles Harvey leading, is offering an excellent, convenient and affordable way to earn a Doctor of Ministry Degree (D.Min.) for those living in the Great Lakes region. The seminary offers a 50%-reduction-in-cost for those within our network who will register, enroll and participate in the “Great Lakes D.Min. Cohort.” Pursue a quality education without ignoring your ministry. The Baptist State Convention of Michigan (BSCM) is partnering with Southeastern Seminary and other Great Lakes states.

The deadline for registration, through Southeastern Seminary, is quickly approaching on September 1, 2020. Six students have already registered from Michigan. Four other students have registered from Minnesota, Wisconsin and Indiana. The seminary will explain the prerequisites for a D.Min. degree and can discuss financial aid with you, if necessary.


Dr. Danny Akin, the president of Southeastern Seminary said, “If you desire a mentoring relationship with an experienced professor and want to avail yourself of the encouragement of a cohort of like minded ministers, this degree is for you.” Students from Michigan will gather together and join other Great Lakes students for online class discussions.


Tony Lynn, the State Director of Missions for BSCM said, “The reading, discussions and writing completed during a D.Min cohort often helps those students become people who influence others and the future in positive, significant and practical ways. Some students even publish their project after completing their studies.” Lynn added, “I believe the future of the state convention will become clearer and stronger as students from Michigan participate in this D.Min. cohort.”


Orientation class for this cohort begins this September. This cohort is set-up in such a way that the pandemic and adjustments to movements with COVID-19 should not hinder the Great Lakes D.Min. Cohort.
