Most of the Doctoral degrees require
the completion of 40 credits beyond the Master's
degree. The following
degrees require 60 credits
Master's degree, including a mandatory doctoral
dissertation: Doctor of Christian Philosophy, Doctor of Divinity, and Doctor
of Theology. These credits may
come from a combination of: 1) courses taken; 2) an original thesis or
3) a practicum or internship experience.
The student is expected to work together with the Dean in designing
a program that will meet his
for growth in the area(s) in which God has placed a passion in his heart.
Courses taken: The student may choose any of the
courses offered by CLU. If he chooses an undergraduate
additional work will be added to fulfill the graduate-level requirements.
Original dissertation or
ministry project: This can be an original written
work, or the creation of a ministry work. Uniqueness and/or originality
will be key evaluation points of this project. If a written project,
it should keep a balance between original textual research (in
Scripture and secondary literature) and a practical testing of
the thesis in real life. Somehow the ministry work or the original
written work should add a new perspective to the knowledge and
practice of the topic addressed by the thesis.
Practicum or internship: We also encourage a portion of
the doctoral degree be from real life ministry experience.
Limits: A maximum of 20 credits may be awarded for the total
of both transfer credits from other institutions and from credits earned
for life experience. Of these 20, no more than 10 may come from credits
earned for life experience.
ďNine years ago we had Mark come and teach CWG at the church we pastored in Ontario, Canada. The principles he taught guided us in hearing the Lordís voice until that voice eventually led us and our five children here to Kiev, Ukraine to work with YWAM as missionaries. Those same CWG principles kept us here during difficult days of lawlessness and lack in the nation. Recently, we had Mark come to Kiev and teach over 900 Ukrainians in these same principles and the response was overwhelming, with hundreds expressing a new release of Godís voice in their lives as well as the way they see and understand Godís character. Many pastors are now asking for return visits from Mark. Markís book is now being translated into Russian and we are looking forward to many from this former atheistic communist nation to be transformed with Communion With God as one of our primary tools.Ē
