What McCormick Students Say About the D.Min. Program
Widget Content: 

"My ministry context is broad, diverse and sometimes unpredictable.  The academic and personal reflection components of the program continually enhance my ability to serve in new ways.  The ecumenical setting is a bonus as it helps to be reminded that God comes to people in different ways and all should be respected." The Reverend Angela Shepherd, Episcopal Diocese of Maryland, Baltimore, MD.

"I was seeking the opportunity for advance study in an Adult Learning environment where the interaction between mature practitioners, facilitators, and students alike, enables growth in collaboration with one another. This context is not available everywhere, but I found it at McCormick." The Reverend Peter Bartlett, Eastminster United Church, Belleville, Ontario.

"I'm not the same person I was when I started the D.Min. program a year ago, because I have been stretched to view my surroundings with complexity and multiculturally. I feel I am evolving, growing and changing to be the leader in Christ's church fulfilling a continual call." The Reverend Sara Rabe, Zwingli United Church of Christ, Paoli, WI.
