Wesley Theological Seminary Doctor of Ministry Track Application Deadline Is Dec. 2 News and Events Lyndon Orinion Oct 25 2013 Applications for Wesley Theological Seminary’s Doctor of Ministry track Leadership Excellence are due December 2. Wesley’s Doctor of Ministry program offers an advanced-level curriculum that combines ministry experiences with the academic resources of the seminary. The Doctor of Ministry program aims to enable pastors to develop an integrated theology of ministry that embraces the total life and mission of the church. The D.Min. program includes an exploration of current theological trends and issues, deepening the integration of discipline and ministry, and providing lasting connections with other students. Wesley Seminary provides a Doctor of Ministry track in Church Leadership Excellence so that clergy will receive the enhanced knowledge, skills, and motivation to increase congregational and denominational service, vitality, and growth. This track focuses on the personal development and public practices of those called to lead the church toward the vision of God's reign. A serious engagement with contemporary secular leadership studies is held in tension with theology. Students examine the biblical, theological, and ethical foundations of ministry through the lens of leadership to enhance their own fruitful practice of leadership. The combined resources of the Wesley faculty and the Lewis Center for Church Leadership bring depth and energy to this track. Wesley offers other Doctor of Ministry tracks, including a Spirituality for Tranforming Community track, a military chaplaincy track, an arts and theology track, and an urban ministry track.
