Doctor of Ministry
Why is now a great time to apply to Western’s D.Min. program?
Maybe you’re thinking about applying to Western’s DMin. Allow us to provide for you some reasons why we think our program is worth your consideration.
1) New Class- Effecting Gospel-Centered Transformation
This June, program director Art Azurdia will teach the new required DMin course, ‘Effecting Gospel-Centered Transformation.’ This class will demonstrate that all of the Bible centers on the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and then work though how that truth should affect your preaching, pastoral care, worship, and entire ministry. Apply now, and you could start your DMin with this introductory course that just might transform your entire ministry!
2) 2014/2015 Classes
We could not be more excited about our classes scheduled for this next school year. Bruce Ware, Scotty Smith, Timothy Witmer, Dan Doriani, Michael Haykin, and Kent Hughes will all be teaching DMin courses. Could one of them be your next professor?
3) Practical, Publishable Dissertation
We don’t want your dissertation to sit on a shelf in Western’s library. Rather, we want each student to produce a practical and scholarly product that speaks to the field of pastoral ministry, will be a blessing to your fellow pastors, and is worthy of and appropriate for publication. Dr. Reid Kisling now oversees our dissertation process, and with his help your dissertation could make a significant impact upon pastors and ministry leaders everywhere!
4) Lifelong Learning
Every DMin graduate can audit one class every academic year, for free. We want to invest in your ongoing, lifelong education, and because we will continually bring in professors such as D.A. Carson, Bryan Chapell, Robert Smith, Ray Ortlund, Bruce Ware, Dan Doriani, and Kent Hughes, there will never be a shortage of opportunities for further growth and education!
