Doctor Of Ministry

Joint Program of
Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando, USA
Southeast Asia Bible Seminary, Malang, Indonesia

Registration Opens April 1, 2011

Classes will be held in Southeast Asia Bible Seminary, Malang, Indonesia

This joint program is designed to increase the effectiveness of pastors. It is built upon the biblical, theological, and professional foundations of the Master of Divinity degree. The program is designed to be flexible enough to meet individual needs while seeking to encourage increased competence in the classical and functional disciplines already studied in pre-professional courses required for ministry.

Requirements include the successful completion of thirty semester hours, which are offered in eight courses plus a doctoral project. Students may take 2 to 4 courses per year. The division of hours is indicated below:

Four core courses 12 hours
Theology of Ministry  
Applied Theology  
Church Revitalization  
Four electives 12 hours
Doctoral project 6 hours
Total 30 hours

Each course or seminar has three components:

(1) assigned reading of approximately two thousand pages to be completed before attending the classroom session
(2) a one-week (five days) session of classroom meetings for lectures, reflection, and evaluation; and
(3) a post-session integration paper growing out of the reading and class work

Written assignments February courses should be submitted to the D.Min. office no later than May 31, and assignments for July-August courses should be submitted no later than November 30.

An on-campus classroom session is offered in February, and July-August each year with two courses available during each session.  Students ordinarily take four to five years to complete all the program requirements. A maximum of six years is allowed for completion of the program. Doctoral students are required to complete a minimum of one (three-hour) D.Min. course per year until the completion of their course work.


Reformed Theological Seminary is accredited by the Commision on colleges of the Southern Association of colleges and schools in the USA to award master's and doctorate degrees. SAAT is not accredited by the commision on colleges and the accreditation of RTS does not extend to or include SAAT or its students. Although RTS has a partnership with SAAT and accepts certain course work from SAAT in transfer toward a credential with RTS, or collaborates in other ways for generation of course credits or program credentials, other colleges and universities may or may not accept this SAAT coursework in transfer, even if it appears on a transcript from RTS. This decision about transfer of credits is made by the institution subsequently considering the possibility of accepting such credits.
