In our new missional era, congregations must learn to establish habits and practices for attending to God’s presence and work in the world. Drawing from faculty expertise in reading contexts and leading congregations through change, this program cultivates leadership practices that can equip congregations to recognize, discern, and participate in God’s mission.
- Dr. Scott Hagley, W. Don McClure Associate Professor of World Mission and Evangelism
The Doctor of Ministry Missional Leadership Focus seeks to form pastors to lead congregations in discerning their participation in God’s mission within specific contexts. The D.Min. program allows you to step out of your ministry context to sift through new information and ideas, then step back in to discover how and why that learning matters. At the end of your course work, you will design and implement a project that engages your ministry context in conversation with your work in the classroom.
The Missional Leadership Focus includes:
Missional leadership, the gospel notion of mission and its distortion, the importance of place, relationship and neighborliness, and the gifts and challenges that the pandemic has offered the church are the focus of this episode of the Doing It Different podcast. Porsha Williams Gates explores the Missional Leadership Focus in the Doctor of Ministry Program with DMin student the Rev. Laura Strauss '09 and Dr. Scott Hagley.
