For June 2016: note that a new Eastern Christian Focus, meeting at Antiochian Village,
A Christian Spirituality Focus, meeting in Pittsburgh, and a SYI Doctor of Ministry for those pastors who were at one time participants in the Summer Youth Institute, meeting in Pittsburgh.
The goal of the DMin program at Pittsburgh Seminary is to be attentive to the changing opportunities of and for ministry. Vocational shifts which have opened space beyond the traditional pastoral role, though that remains important, to chaplains, church planters, nonprofit leaders, and college and university leaders.
As director, I am beginning a long awaited sabbatical July 1 through November 29, 2015.
Please note that Ramona Spencer, administrative coordinator for the DMin, will be available to answer questions, and will contact me if needed.
I am grateful I have this time to step away. Who knows what adventure awaits in the next few months. As a wanderer by nature, I look forward to new experiences, lots of writing and reading, and the mix of rest and renewal.
Please do not, I repeat, hesitate to contact the DMin office for questions and guidance on any aspect of the program.
