AMD Director Michael Hernández is excited to announce that he is looking for potential doctoral students who have a desire to enroll in an English language doctoral program through our partnership with Pentecostal Theological Seminary! The majority of the program is offered online! If you are interested in this program, please e-mail us at for more information. All interested candidates must fill out an application on our website.

The DMin program through PTS is a field-research based (i.e. local ministry contexts) post-graduate program. Students are trained in both the practical and theoretical aspects of ministry from a Wesleyan Pentecostal perspective. The DMin student will benefit from the following:

  • Focus areas include pastoring, leadership, teaching ministry, counseling, chaplaincy, intercultural church development, community development, and other areas
  • Global learning with COGOP students from the U.S., Europe, Latin America, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.
  • 36 credit hour program (up to 24 hours online with at least 12 hours on campus)

We are currently working on building a cohort that might begin as early as next year. We need a group of at least 20 students to begin this cohort. You must meet PTS requirements in order to be eligible for this program. For more details about the program, e-mail us at For more information about all AMD programs, visit
