Geared for youth ministry
professionals with a masters degree and active in ministry, this
advanced learning takes place in four 1-year modules, followed by the
D. Min. project. The cohort (group of fellow youth ministry
professionals) comes together for course work and maintains contact
over the four year period, including annual, 2-week intensives, group
work projects, and regular contact throughout each module.
Doctor of Ministry is a practical degree, studying and researching in
the field, and then applying what is learned to ministry situations.
Even the dissertation project calls for the application of current
research in a ministry setting.
The current cohort in Youth and Young Adult Ministry began in February, 2014.
Annual intensives provide points of contact while doing ministry in their own contexts throughout the year.
Below are a few photos from our first intensive, which was held in Orlando, Florida. The second year of intensives took place on the campus of Andrews University. Year three will be in the Seattle area of Washington.
