Introduction to DMin Program
Come to be Transformed
Transformation is what our Doctor of Ministry program is about: transformation of your life and ministry. You can’t move forward if nothing changes. You are transformed into “a better me,” not into someone else. We teach you to ask:
“How can I use what I’ve got?” rather than,
“How can I be what I’m not?”
- “I am now more accepting of myself as a leader. I feel more equipped and understanding about what leadership is.”
- “It has helped me better understand myself and my skills, weaknesses and strengths.”
Mentoring is a part of the transformation process. You work with mentors of your choosing to implement what you’re learning. You and your mentors are trained in the mentoring relationship through an online course.
Two areas are key to your development: you must see reality and respond effectively. If you don’t see reality you can’t know what to do. Only when you see reality can you respond effectively.
- “I was encouraged to think in different ways (outside the box).”
- “This is revolutionary to my life and thought.”
- “I figured out some organizational position issues—very, very relevant.”
Denver Seminary’s goal for master’s level students is to engage the needs of the world with the redemptive power of the gospel and the life-changing truth of Scripture.. In the Doctor of Ministry program, our aim is to help you do the same with people in your ministry.
- “My thinking and approach has been altered significantly.”
- “Addressing the relationship between the gospel and the moral health of the church has been most helpful to my ministry.”
- “I like how the professors took abstract concepts and helped us to use them in a practical situation.”
- “Immediate impact on my personal and professional life.”
- “Open doors to access more accurate utilization of Scripture in ministry to marriages and families.”
