Doctor of Ministry in Semiotics & Future Studies

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The Leadership in Emerging Culture Doctor of Ministry (DMin) tracks explore the character and shape of effective Christian leadership in the emerging culture. The Semiotics and Future Studies Doctor of Ministry (DMin) program with Dr. Leonard (Len) Sweet emphasizes preparing an advance guard of apostles for the future. These are followers of Jesus who are not afraid of the future but are excited about its possibilities and promises, while aware of its perils and pitfalls. The approach is an ancient-future one of MRI (Missional, Relational, Incarnational) discipleship, using an EPIC (Experiential, Participatory, Image-Rich, Connective) interface. Students explore how to transition the church from its current default of APC (Attractional, Propositional, Colonial) to MRI, and play with a variety of EPIC interfaces.
