Columbia Theological Seminary Will Offer Doctor of Ministry Courses at Montreat, NC


Decatur, GA— Beginning in fall 2008, Columbia Theological Seminary, in Decatur, GA, will offer courses in the Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) program at the Montreat Conference Center of the Presbyterian Church (USA), in Montreat, NC. Course work will be offered in the D.Min. program’s “Church and Ministry” concentration, beginning with the introductory seminar in September 2008. Two elective courses in the program will be offered in the spring and fall of 2009. Two informational lunches have been scheduled for prospective students: Thursday, November 1, at the Montreat Conference Center; and Thursday, November 8, at First Presbyterian Church in Charlotte, NC. Both lunches begin at noon. There is no charge but advance registration is required. Columbia’s D.Min. program requires the completion of 36 hours of graduate credit and is designed for active church leaders who have completed the M.Div. degree and have at least three years of service in the church. Completion of the program typically requires three to four years of study, combining limited time in class, a supervised ministry practicum, and a research project in the student’s place of ministry. To register for the lunch and for program details and admission requirements, please contact Charles Raynal, director of advanced studies, at 404-687-4534, or Information about the D.Min. program may also be found on the seminary’s Web site at Go to Degree Programs/Advanced Degrees.
