“We are excited about this newly redesigned program, and feel it has the potential to help the church and mission in powerful and innovative new ways.”
One of the places where MST’s global reach is most obvious is in our Postgraduate research. Currently we have students from across the globe studying critical issues that impact the church and mission here in Australia, Africa, Asia, North America, and the Middle East. Some are investigating the influence of ancient texts on the practice of mission today. Others are looking at the influence of current events on ministry practice. While the Bible, ministry, and mission form the bedrock of our research, many of our students are integrating science, psychology, history, culture, education, philosophy, and linguistics into their theological reflections. The research going on in our postgraduate department has the potential of influencing educational practices, church ministries, mission strategies, and Bible translation all around the globe. This is, indeed, an exciting season for research at MST.
There are also some important new developments on the horizon which we are very excited to announce. After two years of planning and development, we are pleased to let you know about our newly revised Doctor of Ministry (DMin) degree. Over the past two years, the ACT has completely redesigned our DMin to reflect the needs of our churches, society, and students today. The result is an award that will provide students with the skills they need for even more effective ministry in local churches and mission settings, as well as other contexts within our culture and society.
The new DMin combines rigorous coursework that will be selectively chosen to meet the student’s particular needs and interests. The goal is for each student to perfect their skills and learning in the area that is most relevant and needed for them. Students will also be part of a cohort throughout their studies, sharing ideas and sharpening one another through conversation and collaboration. And finally, students will produce a research project focusing on their particular area of ministry.
We are excited about this newly redesigned program, and feel it has the potential to help the church and mission in powerful and innovative new ways.
