Doctor of Ministry

Responsive leadership. Moral audacity.

Drew Theological School invites you to join us on a new path toward your Doctor of Ministry degree. Choose a DMin experience that supports your vocational goals and lifestyle, and that responds to the great theological and ethical challenges of our day.

Drew currently offers two DMin concentrations:

  • Public Theology (hybrid, low residency, starts spring 2019)—This flexible and innovative program forges a network for leaders devoted to transforming faith and social justice, preparing them to leverage the gospel to build a just and generous society. This cohort is led by progressive movement leaders, Jacqui Lewis and John Janka of Middle Church in the East Village of New York City, and Drew Theological School faculty.
  • Courageous Leadership in a Changing Culture (starts summer 2019)—A radically different degree designed for the engaged and curious leader committed to speaking and leading in congregations and in the public square in relevant and courageous ways.
