D.Min. Admission: M.Div. Equivalency
An M.Div. from an accredited institution or M.Div. Equivalency
is required for entry into the Doctor of Ministry program. M.Div.
Equivalency is the completion of 72 credits of graduate study
in categories parallel to the M.Div. curriculum at AGTS. M.Div.
Equivalency is not a degree program.
Equivalency Evaluation: before
taking any course for M.Div. Equivalency, be sure to contact
the D.Min. Office for an Equivalency evaluation. This free process
requires sending us your undergraduate and graduate
transcripts (address them to D.Min. Office, AGTS, 1435 N. Glenstone
Ave., Springfield, MO 65802 or fax to 417-268-1047). We can tell
you very quickly both how many credits you will need to take
at accredited graduate schools and in what subject areas these
credits should be earned. Contact Joshua Rodriguez in
the D.Min. Office to begin the evaluation process. No credit
for life experience will be granted.
With an evaluation in hand, AGTS offers several ways to earn
M.Div. Equivalency through high-quality professional development:
specially designed course delivery system for pre-doctoral students,
FasTrak offers M.A. holders the opportunity to earn Equivalency
at an accelerated pace. For example, with a 36-hour M.A. in hand,
one could earn M.Div. Equivalency in two years or less using
the FasTrak model. Courses are taken in a six-credit format achieved
by additional reading and writing assignments. FasTrak is a flexible
experience. A participant can select classes in an area of interest
from a large menu of subjects taught at locations around the
country and online.

Education Office provides a wealth of learning opportunities
both in the form of degree programs such as the Master of Arts
in Christian Ministries, and as free-standing courses which can
accumulate into M.Div. Equivalency. Courses are taught at a variety
of campuses, including Springfield, Missouri, and around the
country, as well as online and by DVD.
