Ecumenical Theological Seminary

Doctor of Ministry Program

Training in Ministry Beyond the Initial Experiences of Pastoral Commitment
The ETS Doctor of Ministry (DMin.) program has been developed to emphasize minister's specific needs.  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. 
 
Program Highlights
  • 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.
Prerequisites
  • Master of divinity or an equivalent Masters Degree in a theological field is required for admission to the Doctor of Ministry Program.
  • If your Master's Degree is not the equivalent of a Master of Divinity Degree, you may be required to take courses at the Master's level before beginning the Doctor of Ministry Program.
