Theology & the Arts Doctor of Ministry Tue, 23 Sep 2014 15:15:31 +0000 Program:

MTS is excited to offer a Doctor of Ministry degree with an emphasis on Theology and the Arts (TAP). This program is designed to meet the needs of those in ministry who are interested in identifying specific areas of his/her ministry where theology and the arts intersect. Students will gain a vocabulary to articulate the realities of those intersections, as well as gain skills and knowledge in order to enable others in their particular ministry contexts to see where theology and the arts come together. This is a terminal degree in the area of the practice of ministry as opposed to a research driven program. Because of this, graduates of the TAP D.Min. program have a direct impact on the work of faith communities in which they serve.

The Basics:
• 36 hour program
• Retreat Style – students are expected to do much of the work outside of class; there are two-week residency seminars twice a year, January and July.
• There will be a Project Proposal outlining a need in his/her particular ministry setting
• Students will be expected to complete a project which provides the practical learning atmosphere as well as enhances the ministry in a particular context.
• There will be a Project Report in which students will detail the planning process, research required, implementation, and evaluation of his/her particular project.
