The timing and discipline was right for me. The NTS Doctor of Ministry Degree Program opened my mind and heart to a fresh encounter of current educational, shepherding, and practical insights required for pastoral ministry in our times. My understanding of service in Christ’s kingdom to this generation took on new dimensions through the study disciplines. I am more grounded, prepared for the coming years of challenging pastoral ministry. Thank you NTS.

When I was searching for a place to get a Doctor of Ministry Degree, I happened to be at NTS and, that day, ran into the national accreditors for Doctor of Ministry Degree Programs across North America.  They told me the NTS D. Min. was the “Mercedes” program.  That was enough for me and I enrolled! My D. Min. experience at NTS was extraordinary. The scholarship of the professors, the camaraderie among colleagues and the learning was far beyond what I had imagined.
