Launching this Fall: Doctor of Ministry in Spiritual Formation and Leadership

The Southern Association for Colleges and Schools has officially approved Richmont’s newest degree program and first offering at the doctoral level.  The Doctor of Ministry in Spiritual Formation and Leadership is a 3-year program launching its first cohort this fall.

“Richmont’s Doctor of Ministry program is deeply unique in its combination of practical leadership skills, robust theological application, and in-depth spiritual formation that is integrated throughout the whole curriculum,” comments Dr. Sam Youngs, one of several principal authors of the program. “Church and para-church leaders across many contexts will be empowered to strengthen the impact of their ministries while also growing closer to Christ.”  Dr. Preston Hill highlights the direct connection between the new doctoral degree and institutional mission: “The launch of the new Doctor of Ministry degree signals a monumental step for advancing Richmont’s mission to provide healing, restoration, and transformation in the world today. This level change is a milestone for our University that will pay dividends of positive social change for years to come. I could not be more thrilled for this opportunity!”
