I am still at Phoenix Seminary (going for the M.Div) but I am also going for this:
Overview: WELCOME TO TALBOT'S DOCTOR OF MINISTRY PROGRAM!
We know ministry is challenging. The need for wise and skillful ministry is great. Talbot can help. Our Doctor of Ministry program is designed to help experienced ministers to minister even more effectively. Our program is designed to allow you to continue in your full time ministry while you learn, reflect, and polish the gifts God has given you. We ask you to come to campus only two weeks a year, for training by some of the world’s best faculty in small classes filled with people who are passionate about the same things you are passionate about. Our location, just outside the great city of Los Angeles, makes it easy for people from all over the world to come and learn with us. The cost of the program is modest, and the value of what you learn is priceless. We invite you to join us and “fan into flame the gift of God that is in you” (2Timothy 1:6).

Engaging Mind & Culture is a Doctor of Ministry track designed to give you the tools you need to engage the minds you minister to and those you would like to. It will give you access to the resources of the world’s largest Christian Philosophy program. This is an opportunity to be mentored by some of the ablest minds in evangelicalism today: J.P. Moreland and Garry DeWeese. Their goal is to help inspire genuine spiritual and intellectual maturity in you and your people.
Year One: Understanding Worldviews & Culture
In the first week you will begin to gain confidence in engaging worldviews in a way that is culturally conversant, theologically informed, and philosophically savvy. We will examine the foundations of the two major worldviews that rival Christianity and shape our culture: naturalism and postmodernism.
During week two, you will learn how to think “Christianly” in the midst of worldview conflict and cultural chaos. Four areas will be examined: 1) crucial notions in metaphysics relevant to preaching, reality, truth, love, life after death, and God himself; 2) key concepts in epistemology, 3) the nature of consciousness and human persons, and 4) important issues in science and religion, reductionism, and the Intelligent Design debate.
