DMin in Transformative Discipleship


In partnership with the Apprentice Institute



The focus is: Christian Transformation through Narratives, Practices, and Community

The goal of this program is to provide Christian leaders with a deep experience in personal discipleship while simultaneously growing in the capacity to bring transformation to others within their own ministry context.

  • Become a member of a spiritual discipleship cohort, gathering four times over a period 18-months in retreat with the staff and faculty of the Apprentice Institute.
  • In between the intensives, students deepen their learning as they interact and reflect biblically and theologically with their seminary professors through meaningful academic assignments.
  • The curriculum includes four cohort gatherings, three core Doctor of Ministry courses, and concludes with a practical thesis project.
  • The curriculum is based on James Bryan Smith’s “Triangle of Transformation: Narratives, Practices, and Community.”
  • The DMin is earned in only 43 months.
