I am looking for suggestions on obtaining a doctorate by research only/dissertation only in the field of Christian management or leadership. The parameters for this are that the organization that I serve as executive director for is willing to pay $3,000 for me to obtain another degree. My education background is that I have an accredited BS with a double major in Biblical Studies and Organizational Leadership, and an accredited terminal Master of Fine Art in Arts Management and Leadership. I have an unaccredited Doctor of Theology. I went the unaccredited route because that was the only program that I could afford to pay for out of my pocket at the time. I am not afraid of rigor. I had to write a thesis for my MFA degree, and that thesis was eventually turned into a book, Machiavellian Arts Management, that is now a required textbook in several universities in America and abroad. The dissertation that I wrote for the ThD has been accepted as a book by a publisher, as well. I have participated in several lectures/symposiums/presentations dealing with management/leadership and humanities related subjects. Next week, I will be presenting at an international symposium on nonprofit arts management at Saint Petersburg State University in Saint Petersburg, Russia. I will be presenting a talk based on the book that I wrote, and I will be contributing a 13 page article for a publication that will be produced in conjunction with the event. Additionally, I have taught adjunct at a local community college for 6 years. I have created 8 new courses for the college, 5 of which have been turned into state required courses for students in general education courses. The college will not pay for me to continue with school because I am only adjunct. I have been in ministry for 17 years, and have been interim pastor of churches, and currently am pastor of a SBC church for the last 4 years. The local and state convention will not contribute any funds towards my education, so they are not an option. The church that I pastor is a small urban/inner city congregation that does well to just pay its bills. So, they do not have funds to help. My wife and I still have school loans from obtaining our undergrad and grad degrees. So, I will not take out another loan for school. With all of that being said, the organization that I direct will give $3,000 towards another degree. I have looked at UNISA, but it is not clear how much tuition is to obtain a doctorate through them. I have looked at Louisiana Baptist University’s PhD in Christian Leadership, which is around $3,000, but that would be getting 2 unaccredited degrees. Does anyone know of any programs that would be in line with what I am looking for? Ideally, I would like to complete it through research/dissertation. My dissertation idea is Machiavellian Ministry. I would apply Machiavelli’s philosophy from his book The Prince and apply it to urban ministry settings. In essence, I would be building upon the idea that I began to explore when I wrote my masters thesis. Thank you for any suggestions.
