WELCOME FROM THE ASSOCIATE DEAN
Thank you for exploring the Doctor of Ministry degree at McAfee School of Theology. You are invited to explore with us the ways in which your ministry may be enhanced by academic study integrated with your calling and practice of ministry. We have recently graduated our first cohort of students and have refined our program in light of their suggestions and experiences. We are ministry-centered and student-focused.
If you are involved in full-time ministry and desire a program that provides opportunities of collegial learning with exceptional faculty, a core of highly competent ministry coaches, and with peers in ministry engaged in integrative theological research that will contribute to the work of your ministry setting, I invite you to explore the options of McAfee’s D.Min. degree.
The faculty of McAfee is committed to a program that emphasizes the best in Biblical, theological and practical scholarship with flexibility in design that allows for successful study and ministry practice. If you can spend eleven weeks in intense study on campus over three years, are willing to engage in creative research on the areas of ministry that fit your interests and needs, and are challenged by implementing well-researched initiatives in ministry reported in a written Project Thesis, please call or write to us. Let us share with you how your interests in preaching, worship, spiritual growth, pastoral care, missional church, congregational leadership, Christian education, Biblical/Theological teaching, or other ministry areas can be enhanced at McAfee.
One of the significant values of the McAfee community since it founding in 1996 is an “open door” policy of accessibility between faculty and students. We think you will find that same value available to you as a D. Min. student. So, call or email our office.
