God Favors South College with First Doctor of Ministry Program

God called and set apart South College, for such a time is this, to launch its first Doctor of Ministry (DMin) program on January 20, 2021. 

The DMin program will be online and can be completed in as little as a three years, according to a press release from South College. South College has made the DMin program very affordable for students who choose to enroll. 

While South College is not a faith-based university, it was influenced by its connection to churches to create the DMin program for students. Students of all faiths are welcome to enroll in the DMin program.   

“South College has always had a connection to churches, who partner with us and who support and encourage students,” Professor and Director of South College Ministry Programs Dr. Robb Redman tells Atlanta Christian Voice. “This is a good way to partner with our partnerships and focus on the helping profession in mind, body and spirit.” 

“South College has always had a connection to churches, who partner with us and who support and encourage students,” Dr. Redman tells Atlanta Christian Voice.

The mission of the South College DMin program is simple: to equip ministry leaders to become more effective in their setting and to become more effective practitioners as they develop their leadership. South College has been around for more than 120 years.  

South College has five campuses that comprise its body: the Atlanta Campus, the Asheville Campus, the Knoxville Main Campus, the Knoxville Parkside Campus and the Nashville Campus. 

Some of the professions that the DMin program of South College equips students for include worship leaders and youth pastors. The purpose of the program is to prepare students to advance in their careers.   

“We are delighted to expand our doctorate portfolio by offering the Doctor of Ministry program through our online platform,” said South College Chancellor Steve South. “The variety of opportunities for ministry leaders is diverse, and we offer a climate to foster development across multiple groups from worship leaders to youth pastors. This program fits within our mission of preparing individuals for or to advance in careers.” 

Many factors contributed to the formation of the DMin program at South College, including the Coronavirus pandemic. The Coronavirus pandemic is one of the mains reasons that the DMin program is online.  

“[South College leaders] saw the opportunity from the pandemic and the educational needs of ministry leaders,” Dr. Redman tells Atlanta Christian Voice.  

The DMin program of South College welcomes all students into this ministry program.  

“I would say we would love to talk to you about your ministry setting and calling and how we can help you take the next steps,” Dr. Redman tells Atlanta Christian Voice. “We would love to talk to you how God is leading you and the type of ministry that God is calling you to.”
