Background: I've been in full-time vocational ministry since 1991 and have a MS in Management and Leadership from Western Governors University. Through the years I've often thought I would enjoy teaching at a small to medium sized college (likely a Christian university in either leadership or Christian ministry). I've been looking at several doctoral programs (Cumberlands Ph.D. in Leadership, California Southern University DBA, Denver Seminary D.Min., and American College of Education Ed.D. in Leadership). These programs are regionally-accredited (with the exception of Denver Seminary which is ATS) and are relatively low-cost (another consideration at my stage in life). Here's my question: how viable would I be as a candidate in my mid-50's? While I have extensive teaching, speaking, and leadership experience, it has been in the non-profit and for-profit environments and not in a college classroom. Thanks in advance!
