25 years into my ministry I realized that I was desperately in need of updating my library, and the resources with which I was familiar. I also realized that I needed to re-immerse myself in an educational endeavor for the last half of my ministry. I investigated a large number of doctoral programs and came to the firm conclusion that NTS could provide in both breadth and depth just what I needed as a pastor in the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition. The NTS Doctor of Ministry Program met and exceeded all of my expectations. I continue to draw daily—literally daily—from the insights I gained in the NTS Doctor of Ministry Program. I couldn’t be more supportive; to me, the Doctor of Ministry Program is one of the most appealing aspects of what NTS has to offer the Church today.
