Students in Wesley Theological Seminary’s Doctor of Ministry track in Church Leadership Excellence receive the enhanced knowledge, skills, and motivation to lead churches to increased service, vitality, and growth. This track focuses on the personal development and public practices of those called to lead the church toward the vision of God’s reign. Students examine the biblical, theological, and ethical foundations of ministry through the lens of leadership to enhance their own fruitful practice of leadership. A serious engagement with contemporary secular leadership studies is held in tension with rigorous theological exploration. The combined resources of the Wesley faculty, the Lewis Center for Church Leadership, and exemplary practitioners bring depth and energy to this track.
