DMin Focus Groups

Learn from experienced religious leaders in United’s mentor-based Doctor of Ministry program. Your mentor will lead your focus group through an area of ministry relevant to the church today. You will receive feedback, academic guidance and support in your ministry from your mentor and peers during your time in the DMin program.

Search the list of mentors and groups below to find a group that supports your area of study and ministry goals.

Focus Group offerings are subject to change. United Theological Seminary reserves the right to cancel a Focus Group when enrollment is insufficient to warrant offering the group. You may contact the Doctor of Ministry office at any time to request assistance to identify an appropriate group for your specific area of interest.
