PSR’s Doctor of Ministry program in Hawai’i

In the summer of 2016, PSR began offering our Doctor of Ministry program in Hawai’i. The first cohort of students came from a wide range of places in the Pacific World and the focus of their work was on ministry issues arising in Pacific contexts.

A new class begins July 30-Aug 10, 2018 to join apply by June 15

The DMin provides an opportunity for you to:

Use your skills in critical engagement with texts and traditions and contextual analysis to advance your understanding of the nature and purpose of ministry in a particular context.

    • Be able to work in partnership with people in other ministry settings to develop higher skill in communicating the Christian faith and in developing leadership styles for effective social change.
    • Create new knowledge and research about the practice of ministry that contributes to the understanding and practice of ministry.
    • Enhance your ministry skills and competencies through discipline study using research and conversation with peers and instructors.
    • Integrate these understandings and competencies into a theologically coherent analysis of the practice of ministry.
    • Develop a more aware engaged spirituality.
