RTS Charlotte is pleased to announce the Doctor of Ministry degree program with an Emphasis in Church Revitalization. I hope you will watch the video here to learn more about this ministry.
At RTS Charlotte, we aim to equip pastors to equip the saints and to focus on vocational renewal and congregations health in all we do in the D.Min. program. This Doctor of Ministry is in cooperation with Dr. Harry Reeder and Embers to a Flame (and we believe no other ministry partnership could help us achieve this vision like Embers) seeks to fulfill that vision.
A word on the doctor of ministry degree: while there may have been a “D.Mininization” (Os Guinness) of the Church in years past, the D.Min. at RTS Charlotte is in no way of “professionalization” (Piper) of the ministry. Indeed, this is a mentoring ministry to strengthen pastors for renewal of their own vocations and their congregations through the ordinary means of grace. In other words, the same way that we bring spiritual health to our congregations is the way we must bring about spiritual health to our pastors. That is what this Doctoral ministry is all about. I hope you will share this with a pastor, or an elder, who longs for renewal of ministry.
May God use this to bring about revitalization of pastors and churches. And may God send revival, which is something that only He can do. Lord come down!
To God alone be glory.
