Doctor of Ministry set to begin with full entering cohort

MTSO’s week-long summer session for Doctor of Ministry students begins July 23 with a full entering cohort.

The program, designed around the ministry aspirations and schedules of busy mid-career professionals, brings students together for two one-week class sessions each year, in January and mid-summer.

While the current cohort has filled, application for the cohort beginning in summer 2019 is open now. The deadline is April 20, 2019. More information is at www.mtso.edu/dmin.

Doctor of Ministry students typically move through the 3 1/2-year program with the same cohort of classmates, building relationships during on-campus classes and working from home the rest of the year. They experience small classes, are taught by full-time and affiliated faculty, interact with a national, ecumenical student base, and work with attentive project advisors.

“We’re excited to welcome this new cohort of doctoral students,” said Jeffrey Jaynes, professor in the Warner Chair of Church History and acting director of the Doctor of Ministry program. “I’m confident they’ll be invigorated by their time together seeking a new level of education to enhance their ministry.”

Methodist Theological School in Ohio provides theological education and leadership in pursuit of a just, sustainable and generative world. In addition to the Master of Divinity degree, the school offers master’s degrees in counseling, theological studies and practical theology, along with a Doctor of Ministry degree.
