Strengthen your leadership now!
"What are the ultimate aims of Christian ministry and leadership, for transforming lives, communities and cultures?" This is a guiding question undergirding our Doctor of Ministry programs at Virginia Theological Seminary. It points to what really matters, wherever we are serving - in congregations, schools, colleges, the military, mission field or the larger community.
Our D.Min. programs are unparalleled in their integration of interdisciplinary academic rigor, unflinching challenge for personal growth, and demanding expansion of skills and habits for the sake of transformational leadership.
You bring knowledge, wisdom, and skill from your ministry. You know your own challenges, strengths, and areas for growth. We honor what you bring to this program. You are treated as an adult professional learner. You contribute to the learning of your cohort through intensive reflections on real situations you have faced.
