Program Overview

Program Description:
The Leadership in Emerging Culture Doctor of Ministry (DMin) tracks explore the character and shape of effective Christian leadership in the emerging culture. The Global Missional Leadership DMin program focuses on equipping Christian leaders in church, civil society organizations, and mission communities to confidently, constructively, and effectively carry out the mission of the gospel of Jesus Christ in an increasingly interconnected world. Students explore the interface between the three domains of church, culture, and leadership. They engage in theological/biblical, historical, and sociological analysis of the emerging global culture to gain cultural and theological self-awareness as 'reflective practioners'. They do specialized research in topics such as consumerism, colonialism, the environment, and social justice. They gain skills in the critical and discerning use of online and mobile social media tools and develop an international network of scholarly relationships through real-world experiences in Europe, Africa and Southeast Asia.
