DMin Faith and Culture

Faith & Culture

The purpose of the seminary’s Doctor of Ministry in Faith & Culture is to engage the current culture with the gospel in relevant ways.

This program is designed to be completed while continuing to serve in a ministry context. The program provides opportunities for advanced study in intensive seminars, courses and field settings. It combines academic study and experiential learning under faculty and field supervision to integrate theology and practice.

Attention will be given to biblical and theological understanding and account of culture. Students will critique contextualization models and practices. An examination of select cultural issues and challenges to the Christian faith will allow for thoughtful consideration of ways for Christians to respond. Students will learn to think holistically about how the gospel informs everything a Christian does in this world.

This program includes a 1-credit hour program orientation, 2 credit hours of integrated theology, 12 hours of intensive seminars, 7 hours of contextualized learning in faith and culture and 9 hours related to the student's final project.
