Current Quarter Doctoral Classes

We strive each quarter to provide a flexible and robust schedule of classes to completely engage you in your theological education.  These are the doctoral classes being offered this quarter along with their descriptions.  We are excited about what we offer, and hope you are too.

Career and Personal Assessment

Career and Personal Assessment is designed to help participants explore, within a spiritually sensitive context, the meaning and directions of one’s life and ministry, including the personal implications and meaning of call, general and special gifts for ministry as well as for personal and professional development. Various test instruments are utilized.

Biblical/Theological Reflection

This course seeks to enhance your ability to integrate sound theological understandings into the practice of ministry. To this end, it moves from theological method to actual engagement in theological reflection on ministry situations, ministry concerns and experiences in your own ministry setting. Team taught with David Fitch.

Thesis Design/Research Method

Participants will focus on designing and writing a thesis proposal including a plan for conducting the research, implementation and evaluation of the thesis.

DMIN Thesis

The thesis is the culmination of the D.Min. program. It demonstrates how advanced research and analysis were used in the design and implementation of a ministry-action project. The participants’ ministry issues, which served as the integrative motif for their course of study, is responded to by a designed ministry intervention which is evaluated and reported upon in the thesis, completed under faculty supervision.
