Growing CTS D.Min. Program Meets Continuing Education Need for Pastors

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (CTS)—The recently redesigned Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) Program offered by Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne has experienced great growth in the last year. One of the biggest reasons for the growth is the intentional effort to make the program more accessible, affordable and practical. This allows more pastors to continue their education without interrupting service to their congregation. Hear what pastors currently enrolled in the program have to say by watching a new video here.

"We're pleased with the success and overwhelmingly positive response to the newly redesigned D.Min. Program,” said Dr. Gifford Grobien, director of the D.Min. Program. “Course enrollment more than doubled during the 2013-14 year, and we continue to welcome new students for the upcoming year. There's still opportunity for pastors to apply for the coming Fall or Winter Quarters."

The areas of concentration available for this program, Pastoral Care and Leadership, Teaching and Preaching, and Mission and Culture, have been chosen to allow pastors to dive right into the program drawing on their own experience of service in the congregation.
