Doctoral seminars will meet in one-week intensives that focus on discipleship and spiritual formation, evangelism and missions, church growth and revitalization, and Christian leadership. Each of these seminar topics will have corresponding field-based applied ministry experiences.
The first seminar will meet October 3-7 with Discipleship and Spiritual Formation, taught by Dr. Larry McDonald, Dean of the Graduate School of Christian Ministry. The spring seminar on Church Growth and Revitalization will be taught by Dr. Ken Hemphill, former president of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and founding director of NGUís Center for Church Planting and Revitalization. The spring seminar will meet February 27 - March 2, 2012. All D. Min. seminars will require significant reading prior to convening.
Students may apply to the Doctor of Ministry Program at anytime during the academic year. On-campus intensive seminars will normally be taught in March and October.
