DMin – Gospel and Culture

Equipping leaders for a new, more faithful church, reformed not through accommodation to contemporary culture, but through conversion

Addressing a pervasive need in the church for a new paradigm for relating gospel and culture, this DMin program in Gospel and Culture enables pastors to engage the mission field of North American, postmodern, post-Christian society. As students engage in disciplined cultural analysis, they will find that familiar biblical texts, doctrines, and ethics take on new meanings as they confront the challenges of today. And students will see the emergence of new readings of the church’s situation and the human project alongside their own renewed and enlivened commitment to theological truths.

Columbia Seminary, in partnership with the United Theological College of the West Indies (UTCWI) in Kingston, Jamaica, offers students in the Caribbean the opportunity to complete a DMin in the Gospel, Culture, and Transformation of the Church concentration with coursework primarily located on UTCWI’s campus. For more details about this partner program, contact Rev. Canon Garth Minott at UTCWI (
