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 lifestyle and vocational goals and responds to the great theological and ethical challenges of our day.

Drew current offers three DMin concentrations:

  • Courageous Leadership in a Changing Culture (Fast Track)—A radically different two-year 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.
  • Pastoral Identity and Prophetic Fire—Explore what is it to be a pastor today. In the midst of constant change, how does a pastor model continuity or adaptation? How does one cultivate prophetic fire and purposeful promise as the ground of pastoral practice?
  • Bible, Theology and Leadership in the Korean Context—A reflective and innovative concentration that focuses on both an inward and outward examination of effective practices of ministry in South Korean contexts.
