In partnership with the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection, Gamaliel, and Metro Organization for Racial and Economic Equity (MORE2), Saint Paul's 30 credit hour DMin: Spiritual Leadership in Unsettled Times offers you a valuable opportunity to focus on:

  • Leading in times of polarization and change
  • Employing contextual analysis to respond to contemporary issues
  • Leading communities for social justice ministries
