1 Doctor of Ministry Program in the Renewal of Church and Community Ministries Bangor Theological Seminary, D.Min. Intensive I -August (2 credits) Location: College Circle Campus/Peabody Hall in the Small Classroom The Nature and Purpose of the Doctor of Ministry Program Bangor Theological Seminary offers a three-year Doctor of Ministry program for experienced practitioners in a variety of ministry settings. This advanced professional degree, designed to emphasize a collegial model of practical inquiry and theological reflection with both professional peers and Seminary faculty seeks to foster the renewal of both congregational and community ministries. The D.Min. program also aims at renewing theological dialogue between the candidate and both local and global academic contexts, as well as integrating theological insight gained through active engagement in practice. Special attention is also given to the arts of biblical exegesis, the study of theology, and contemporary ethical perspectives. In addition to on-campus seminars, Doctor of Ministry candidates engage in study and theological reflection with a team of diverse lay leaders in their ministry context (the Team). The candidate and his or her Team together develop a project in shared ministry. In the third year the candidate and the Team implement the project, which then becomes the focus of the candidate's Doctor of Ministry Report. Religious institutions in the United States and Canada are in the midst of fundamental cultural shifts. This Doctor of Ministry program invites religious leaders in diverse contexts to revisit their calling, take time for disciplined study of recent developments in theology, ministry and cultural studies, enhance their leadership skills, and enjoy a sustained opportunity to work with and learn from colleagues in ministry. Doctor of Ministry candidates are also encouraged to honor their own wisdom as practical theologians, to examine critically their social, cultural and ministry contexts, and to explore new forms of theological education for congregations and communities. The Educational Experience The Seminary seeks to provide a variety of educational experiences which accommodate different teaching and learning styles, including seminars, text studies, lectures, workshops and electronic learning. One advantage of the Doctor of Ministry structure is the colleague group. Candidates work together in seminars to explore each other s ministries, learn from recent developments in a variety of academic fields, and work individually with faculty members. The colleague group meets with faculty over a twoyear period; the third year is devoted to the ministry project. The program begins with a week-long Intensive Session on the Bangor campus during August, which includes an orientation to the program. It continues with four two-day sessions per semester either on campus or in a regional location during the academic year, culminating in another week-long Intensive Session during June.

2 The same pattern is followed during the second year. The monthly sessions meet over two days for approximately twenty-four hours. These sessions allow learning to occur both inside and outside formal classroom time. Faculty and candidates can air issues in depth without interruption. Candidates have a place where they can form lasting friendships, deepen their worship life, share common meals, and serve as teachers for one another. The Seminary is committed to a program that enables all members of a class to finish the program on a reasonable schedule. In addition, the faculty has found that candidates benefit from the experience of a community of peers who work together long enough to know each other s strengths and weaknesses, as well as challenges and opportunities. Such communities of common inquiry are more often effective for adult learners than the more traditional classroom setting. D.Min. Program Goals: To encourage a shift in ministry from preoccupation with institutional survival to reviving faithful leadership for the transformation of church and society. To foster a shift from highly clericalized to more collaborative models of ministry. To nurture leadership skills, spiritual integrity, and collegial learning among reflective practitioners in diverse ministry settings. The August 16-20, 2010 Intensive Session The initial session begins with orientation to the program, the Seminary s Bangor campus, and library resources and sets the stage for the first seminar. (2 credits) Goals for the August Intensive: To provide a hospitable welcome and context for new D.Min. candidates to begin to know one another along with available faculty and staff at the seminary. To work together to establish a learning group and to form together a Group Covenant to guide our life together. To provide a careful orientation to the entire D.Min. program in all its aspects, including BTS Library resources, our approach to the educational endeavor, and especially to the work of the first Unit on Context and Vocation. Required Reading for the August Intensive: 1) The D.Min. Program Handbook 2) Embodying Forgiveness: A Theological Analysis by L. Gregory Jones (Eerdmans, 1995).
