D. Min. Student Retreat 2020

Welcome to campus!  Eden’s students for the Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) degree gather on campus January 6-10 for an annual in-person engagement with faculty, staff, campus resources, and each other.  Students are working this week in areas Advanced Theological Education, Practical Theological Method and Skills for Writing the D.Min. Project and Proposal.  It is exciting to see what creativity and collaboration emerge.

Eden’s Doctor of Ministry degree is designed to guide leaders of the Progressive Christian Movement in ministerial leadership.  it is open to those who hold the Master of Divinity degree or its equivalent.

Leaders here transform their ministries to be:

Inspired by Theological Imagination.  The program aims to build capacity to see God’s creative and redemptive purposes at work in the world informed by deep knowledge of the scriptures, traditions and practices of the faith.

Empowered by Social Transformation.  The program aims to build capacity to engage one’s theological imagination and spiritual formation toward social justice action and institutional reformation in order to lead communities to collaborate in God’s redemptive work in the world.

Grounded in Spiritual and Vocational Formation.  The program aims to build capacity to nurture one’s walk of faith while critically engaging one’s faith tradition in its particularity, and to forge relationships of collegiality and accountability with others to collaborate more fully with God’s redemptive work in the world.
