Program Overview

Students who choose to enter the Doctor of Ministry in Servant Leadership for Team and Organizational Effectiveness at Bethel University will become involved with the cohort format of this program. The cohort program means students will enter this program with 10-15 students, and will exit the program with the same students. All students will complete 7 course units over a period of 4 years. A requirement for resident intensives during July and January must also be completed on campus in St. Paul, Minnesota. At the beginning of this program, students will complete preparatory assignments in an online format.

While participating in this doctoral program, students should attempt to enhance their transformational servant leadership skills. Bethel University aims to equip individuals with the tools necessary to effectively lead team groups. Some of the topics students will study include leadership development, self-leadership, and leadership communication skills. Students will explore these topics in classes such as Servant Leadership: An Introduction to the Theory and Practice of Transformational Servant Leadership, The Servant Leader and Organizational Effectiveness: The Art of Culture and Architecture and Leadership Communication, and The Servant Leader and Team Effectiveness: The Art of Leading Teams.

The main goal of this program is to show students how to be successful leaders when working within groups. Leaders must be dynamic, supportive, motivating, and encouraging. These individuals must also be knowledgeable in their field of study, or current career interest. As this is a program that focuses on servant leadership, students will be expected to learn how to put the needs of others first, while also helping them to accomplish their goals.

    School Overview

    In 1871, John Alexis Edgren began Baptist Union Theological Seminary in Chicago to prepare pastors for the ministry of Swedish Baptist immigrants. After the turn of the century, the school relocated to St. Paul and expanded to offer four-year degrees, becoming Bethel College and Seminary. As the school progressed forward, new programs and campus locations were established. In 2004, the school transitioned into Bethel University. Today, retaining its Christian-based vision, the private, not-for-profit Bethel University main campus is located in St. Paul, Minnesota, with additional facilities at San Diego and along the East Coast.

    Bethel University supports goals of adult students seeking associate’s and bachelor’s degrees, in addition to certificate programs. In order to accommodate the busy lifestyles of adult students, accelerated programs are offered online, in the evenings, or on weekends. The Graduate School at Bethel University awards master’s and doctorate degrees, along with certificate and license programs. Students progress through accelerated formats that incorporate faith values. Classes are taught in the evenings and/or on weekends in addition to other campus locations and online.
