Instructions for Prospective Students: The Doctor of Ministry Program at the New Theological Seminary of the West, in partnership with New York Theological Seminary, offers women and men committed to turning faith into informed practice, the opportunity to explore and realize their calling in the church and in the world.

To begin this journey, you answer the following questions as clearly and succinctly as possible. Consider your response to each question in at least two paragraphs, so that readers can better grasp your hopes for ministry.
  1. What is a challenge you have had to face in ministry and how did you face it? What were the implications of your decision?
  2. Please outline three to five specific ways that this degree will inform your ministry. Please include desired outcomes and why these are important for you and our world.
