The Doctor of Ministry
Faith and Culture
The specialization will equip students to lead their people in navigating the different streams of culture from a biblical and missional perspective. Students will be taken to the intersection of theology, culture, and church in an effort to build an appropriate framework for contextualizing the gospel and the church, especially for North America. Students will develop skills to analyze, synthesize, and evaluate 20th century perspectives on theology and cultural context. Attention will be given to the Christian response to such cultural issues as gender and sexuality and human dignity. Students will be taught to articulate their views and equip Christians for cultural engagement and cultural apologetics from a Christian perspective and with confidence. The specialization will show students how to engage thoughtfully rather than retreat from the cultural issues of today.
