Doctor of Ministry

The Doctor of Ministry Program offers training in ministry beyond the initial experience of
pastoral commitment. It intends renewal for the minister and the congregation. An academic
and practical program is developed with an emphasis geared to the minister's specific need.

Interpreting the meanings of theological symbols in the lived experience of ministry brings the whole context of faith to bear on immediate existential challenges of ministry. Worship, prayer and meditation are explored as basic ways of understanding and living ministry.The program of study is developed within the experience of a colleague group. Intensive experiential colleague groups provide the setting in which students and faculty will learn, teach, and pray together. The theory and praxis of ministry grow together through personal vulnerability and mutual support and confrontation, thus modeling faithful and effective ministerial leadership.
