Hood to offer new degree in preaching

Hood Theological Seminary

SALISBURY — Hood Theological Seminary has developed a doctor of ministry degree specialization in homiletics and preaching, according to seminary President Vergel Lattimore.

The specialization is designed to provide educational opportunities for pastors, church staff, missionaries and church leaders who seek advanced theoretical and theological reflection on preaching.

The degree is a 33-hour program with three major components: seminars, academic advisement and a ministry project in the area of homiletics and preaching.

The homiletics and preaching specialization is oriented toward the generalist pastor, senior pastors, preaching pastors, church staff, missionaries and all other levels of church leaders who have responsibility for communicating the gospel and the empowerment of the saints.

It aims to sharpen skills in the area of preaching God’s word in the 21st century. It also focuses on enhancing developmental capacities and sharpening professional identity within a specialized context of a preaching ministry.

Finally, it ensures that each student has a faculty adviser and/or project mentor who has graduate level training or professional credentials in homiletics and preaching.

“The doctor of ministry program at Hood seminary is expanding to assist its students in personal development, professional growth, and to ready them for church and community ministry,” said Jim Wadford, director of the doctor of ministry program.

Interested pastors and lay people should contact his office at 704-636-6962 or the Rev. Reginald Boyd, director of recruitment and admissions, at 704-636-6455 for more information.
