Doctor of Ministry Module


May 2013 Doctor of Ministry Module


During the week of May 20 to 24 TTU hosted a group of 14 Doctor of Ministry students for the DMIN 8973 Research Design and Procedure Module. They came with a variety of ministry interests, Military Chaplaincy, Expository Preaching, Christian Education, Pastoral Counseling, Pastoral Leadership, etc. The module was an intensive week where the students learned the process of isolating an idea for their final Doctor of Ministry project and developing it into a viable project proposal.


The module was taught by three of our seminary professors, Dr. Danny Cochran, Director of the Doctor of Ministry Program, Dr. Francis Kimmitt, Provost of Tennessee Temple University, and Howard Owens Interim Dean of the School of Theology and Ministry. The professors worked with the students on the process of developing the Doctor of Ministry project proposal, the importance of basic research disciplines, the guidelines for accurate research documentation, the importance of clear writing styles, and the task of writing the final project report in preparation for the oral defense. The goal was to equip the students to complete successfully their Doctor of Ministry degree.


For the first time, the module occurred concurrently with the Doctor of Philosophy residency. The doctoral students of both programs benefitted from the interactions and relationships that they developed in the dorms and by enjoying their meals together.
