Asian North American Doctor of Missiology Cohort with Fuller Theological Seminary and ISAAC

Are you a leader seeking to focus on dynamic issues or burning questions within your context so that you can bring about change? We invite you to join us in this exciting program!

The School of Intercultural Studies at Fuller Theological Seminary is pleased to announce that an Asian North American Missiology Cohort is gathering interest for a Fall 2011 launch with an on-campus intensive tentatively scheduled for November 28 -December 8, 2011.

As a group of missional practitioners, the ANA Missiology Cohort will collectively unpack unexamined assumptions that dictate ministry practices in such locales as the immigrant church, the Pan-Asian American church, parachurch ministries, and various mission organizations.

With this four-year program, key leaders will continue their ministries in-context, attending a cohort-based intensive once a year for four years. Each intensive consists of an eight-unit tutorial and a four-unit methodological course that will move research forward.

Students will study with a cohort of scholar-practitioners as faculty, including Dr. Mark Hopkins, Director of the Doctor of Missiology and Assistant Professor of Leadership at Fuller Seminary, Rev. Dr. Young Lee Hertig, Southern California Regional Director of ISAAC (Institute for the Study of Asian American Christianity)/AAWOL (Asian American Women on Leadership), and Rev. Dr. Timothy Tseng, Executive Director of ISAAC, who will serve as the primary cohort mentor. Further faculty will be scheduled to address the specific needs and goals of cohort participants.

Interested? Add your name to the ANA Missiology DMiss cohort “gathering interest” list by e-mailing dmiss@fuller.edu. All cohorts require a minimum number of interested applicants to be launched. The launch determination deadline for the cohort is April 29, 2011.

For further information please visit our website at www.fuller.edu/dmiss or contact Dave Stutzman at 626.584.5299.

Invite your colleagues and friends to join you in researching how you can strengthen your ministry!

    This looks interesting. I wish there was something like this when I did my D.Min. (TEDS – emphasis on preaching). Are Asian Americans interested in this or do they like general education? Do they like to blend in or have specific study on this area? Many are immersed in the minstry to Asian Americans and are getting a practical education. Your thoughts?

      Hello Dr. Wong. Just to shed a little more light on the DMiss – students wind up with a Contextually Applied Research Dissertation, so they are focusing on an area in their ministry where they hope to see transformation. Students utilize the research to come up with a plan to affect change. We have a really helpful chart on our home page that shows the difference between a DMin, DMiss and PhD. http://www.fuller.edu/dmiss
      Feel free to email me with any questions you might have about the DMiss: alyz@fuller.edu
