WHAT STUDENTS SAY...
were two areas of particular strength in their experience of the course:

"There were so many. Onsite interactions with ministry leaders. Small group and discussion times with other students. Great readings."
"I loved the discussions with the team. Sunday was my favorite day with worship at a local church." 
"Open and honest forum in the vast array of worship options and how to connect with different seekers of the faith."

We Will, With God's Help
Annual Matriculation Ceremony Marks Students' Commitments to Growth, Wisdom, and Study
Each academic year, it is a privilege and a joy to participate in the first Evening Prayer service that incoming Master of Divinity and Anglican Studies celebrate together. Following the service, we invite the students as a group “to be received as members of the Bexley Seabury community and pledge, God helping us, to devote ourselves to spiritual growth, wisdom, and study to prepare ourselves as leaders in God’s Church.”

Please join us in praying that each of our students will hear clearly what God is asking of them and embrace it fully.

Contextual...Pragmatic...Practitioner-Taught
Is it time for you or a priest you know to go deeper? Bexley Seabury DMin programs focus on achieving competence in a specific field of practical knowledge and linking learning to your ministry setting. Our faculty members offer academic and pedagogical expertise in their respective disciplines as well as real-world experience.

DMin in Congregational Development
Courses help you refine your leadership, analytic, and community-building capacities, and apply new insights to your ministry context. All courses are offered as 1-week intensives in January and June. Learning continues throughout the year, in online conversations with your core group, and culminates in a thesis.
 
DMin in Preaching
Offered collaboratively with five nearby seminaries, this program is fully ecumenical—faculty, students, and worship all reflecting a mix of faith traditions. Coursework is anchored in 3-week summer terms in Chicago, and continues throughout the year with work in your home congregation leading to a final thesis project.
