As a spiritual guide, your desire is to draw closer to the missional heart of God through the divine disciplines. It's no secret that church leaders must challenge and train Christians to reach new depths of spiritual devotion. So enhance your capacity to counsel those under your care. We'll help you expand on your experience in ministry.
Let our disciplined theologians mentor you. Our courses will provoke contemplation and growth. The program pulls together the dual focus of Missional Theology and Spiritual Formation which we are convinced that are inseparable partners in mission and ministry. Gain encouragement and exhortation from your cohort. Our charge is to strengthen the spiritual formation of Christ-followers living on mission in this broken world. By the time you have earned your D.Min., you'll be calling other believers to embrace God's mission for creation.
