Join the Professional Doctoral Studies Professor Q&A

Got questions about pursuing professional doctoral studies at Southwestern Seminary?

Tune in to this live Professor Q&A with Coleman Ford, director of the Professional Doctoral Studies program, and Shane Parker, director of the Doctor of Educational Ministry program. They will discuss the new concentration for the DMin and DEdMin, Applied Theology. 

The concentration in Applied Theology is designed to equip students to engage in theological discussion and analysis for the purpose of critically applying theological concepts to a wide array of ministry contexts and equip the local church to approach ministry from a stronger theological foundation.

You’ll have the opportunity to learn about our Doctor of Ministry (DMin) and Doctor of Educational Ministry (DEdMin) degrees, as well as get advice on best practices for navigating your application process. And of course, you’ll be able to ask your own questions and get the answers you need to take your next steps in theological education.

On Your Way Fellowship

Are you in the application process with the North American Mission Board or the International Mission Board? Join us once a month for a time of fellowship and helpful conversations as you wrap up your last few months in Fort Worth and prepare for a career in missions. We meet in the World Missions Center at 6:00 pm.

For more information email the World Missions Center at wmc@swbts.edu.

In June 2021, when Mike Smith retired as the president of Jacksonville College in Jacksonville, Texas, he and his wife, Susan, already knew how God was leading their next steps. The couple had recently sold their East Texas home and purchased a 42-foot, fifth-wheel trailer and a heavy-duty pickup truck so they could make themselves available to go “wherever God wanted us to go to help revitalize churches,” Smith says.
