DMin Intentional Disciple-Making

Intentional Disciple-Making

The specialization aims to equip a student to lead a church, organization, or mission in making disciples. Attention will be given to the biblical, theological, philosophical, and historical foundations for missional disciple-making and how these foundations serve in developing the methodological expressions of disciple-making. Skills will be developed to evaluate the effectiveness of disciple-making, demonstrate and reproduce the skills of a disciple-maker, connect the spiritual disciplines to disciple-making, and formulate a strategy of intentional disciple-making in the particular ministry context.

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.
This program includes a 1-credit hour program orientation, a 3-credit hour Minister as Person and Professional workshop, a 2-credit hour integrative theology workshop, 12 hours of intensive seminars, 4 hours of contextualized learning experiences, and 9 hours related to the student's final project.
