Well, after a couple of months worth of thinking, praying, and jumping through some administrative hoops, I got word on Friday that I have been accepted by a seminary for some further education. In August I will officially begin coursework in pursuit of a Doctor of Ministry at George Fox Evangelical Seminary in Portland, Oregon. Specifically, the program I’ll be a part of is called Leadership in Emerging Culture. It’s pretty exciting and very very scary at the same time.

Normally a Master of Divinity degree is required for a DMin, but I don’t have one of those. My grad degree is in Counseling, but I have done some MDiv coursework. Anyway, they decided to let me in, but only on the condition that I complete some additional coursework along the way. In fact, I have to complete 6 credit hours worth of work before I’m allowed to walk through the door in August. That means I have to get cranking right away.

My lovely wife has been super supportive all along the way in this decision making process. One of my big goals and challenges as I do this work will be giving her the kind of time and attention she deserves, even while holding down a full time job and being a student.
