DMin Academic Catalog: Messages from Our Leaders
A Word from our President
We are so pleased that you are considering our Doctor of Ministry program. As the demands of ministry grow more complex, especially in these days of unprecedented uncertainty, the value of additional study, personal reflection, and collaborative problem-solving cannot be overestimated. These are the qualities that our DMin program provides.
Under the leadership of Dr. David Osborn we have assembled an outstanding roster of teachers who embody the integration of solid biblical scholarship, penetrating theological reflection, extensive ministry experience and genuine compassion for the lost. In these people and their classes you’ll encounter truth for the real world, and the ability to utilize it in your own unique life and work.
You will also benefit from the diverse backgrounds and experiences of dozens of your peers, including leaders from a wide array of ministries. At Denver Seminary you’ll find personal attention to your ministry challenges and excellent guidance in completing the degree that will help you move to the next level of effectiveness.
Personally, I don’t think you’ll find a program more carefully attuned to your needs than ours. Oh, and by the way, spending a couple of weeks a year in the Rockies isn’t a bad idea either.
I’d love to meet you when you come to campus!
Mark Young, PhD
A Word from the Director
Connecting is central to leadership and counseling. We connect people to God, to themselves, to others, and to the help they need to learn and grow. We can’t grow people but we can create the resources and the environment which promote growth. That is our goal for our DMin program.
Growth is not to change who we are but how we are—not a different person but a better “me.” We glorify God by becoming the best “me” we can be, not by trying to become a “me” different from what he created.
It is only when we “work with God” that we can “use what we’ve got” to go from where we are to where we need to go. In our program, when we help students do this we call it “travelling in ministry.” That can happen when people are connected.
Come and be connected.

A Word from a Graduate
“I am so thankful for my years in the Doctor of Ministry program at Denver Seminary. While the program is a rigorous academic pursuit, Denver Seminary has put together an experience that touches not only the head of emerging leaders, but also their hearts and hands - impacting both life and action. Through my years in the DMin program I was led towards transformation of soul and transformation of my leadership. I'll be forever grateful for the faculty and staff at Denver Seminary.”
- Dr. Douglas Nuenke, President and Director of the U.S. Navigators
