A Word from the 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 problemsolving cannot be overestimated. Our DMin program will provide all of these. Under the leadership of Dr. Tim Dolan 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 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 There are a number of significant issues facing Christian leaders today, including the complexity of leading and managing highly complex religious organizations, loneliness and depression, burnout and discouragement, and the breakdown of marriages and families. Many Christian leaders struggle with what it means to be a leader and in getting the ongoing support they need to be effective for the Lord in the places where they live and serve. The Doctor of Ministry program at Denver Seminary is designed to help encourage, support, and mentor pastors, counselors, and other Christian leaders in their ministries and to equip them with the skills and tools they need to thrive in the work God is calling them to do. Our practical, cutting edge program gives participants the opportunity to network with, and learn from, other like-minded professionals and to study with some of the finest ministry practioners and counselors in the country. In order to be effective today, Christian leaders need to be continual lifelong learners. I hope you will give our Doctor of Ministry program serious consideration. I think you will be glad you did! Blessings, Tim Dolan, PhD Check us out at Page 1
