I just found out earlier this week that I’ve been accepted to a D.Min. program at Drew Theological School. This is a big event in my life, as I’ve always dreamed of earning a doctoral degree. Since graduating with my M.Div. I wrestled between a Ph.D. and the D.Min. In the end, at this point in my life the D.Min. fits my life, my family, and my calling better than the Ph.D.
I’m excited that it will be through Drew, because I wanted to diversify my education. In other words, since I went to Asbury Theological Seminary for my M.Div., I wanted to go to an official United Methodist Seminary for this next degree.
To my friends out there who played a part in this decision through your prayer, friendship, and wise counsel – thank you! You know who you are. And if you’re not quite sure, but you think you’re one of these, then you probably are!
