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 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 it means to be a pastor today in the midst of constant societal and religious change.  What sort of proclamation is called for in this cultural moment? How does a pastor model continuity and adaptation? How does one cultivate prophetic fire and inspire purposeful action as the ground of pastoral practice?  Led by two of the most respected homiletical practitioners of our day, Leonard Sweet and Gary Simpson, this cohort will explore and begin to shape what is means to be a preacher and pastor in the 21st century church.
  • Bible, Theology and Leadership in the Korean Context—A reflective and innovative concentration that focuses on inward and outward examinations of effective practices of ministry in Korean contexts.  In the core curriculum, students will learn a pedagogical methodology that places scriptural literacy at the center of Christian formation and congregational practice in order to bring spiritual renewal to the Korean church in both the Korean-American and Korean contexts.
