Doctor of Philosophy in Leadership

Our Doctor of Philosophy Leadership degree program is designed to further prepare and equip demonstrated leaders who show exceptional academic promise in the areas of research, teaching, leadership or management.

Our PhD in Leadership is intended for individuals who seek a research doctoral level program of study, taught from a biblical worldview perspective, which will enhance their career ministry in a teaching and/or leadership role in a biblical higher education institution.

Program Distinctives

Our PhD in Leadership program has five distinct characteristics which we believe combine to create one of the most effective learning opportunities available to the doctoral student:

Biblical Worldview Perspective

Research-based study in the fields of leadership, education, and social sciences is accomplished through the lens of a biblical worldview perspective.

Designed for Life-Engaged Adults

Earn a PhD in Leadership in a minimum of three and half years without leaving your work or ministry, moving your family, or uprooting your life.

Internet Enhanced Learning

Using a blended format (online and on-campus), this program combines the academic quality you expect with the scheduling flexibility you want.

Cohort Learning Community

Students will enter the program with a group of 12 to 15 other students resulting in genuine, rich and deep relationships that develop as students support and serve each other.

Servant Leadership Philosophy

Biblical servant leaders possess a deep sense of purpose and are driven by the values that they hold: honesty, integrity, discipline, stewardship, worth and dignity of all people, and social responsibility.
