The Ministry Transformation Project is completed in five distinct stages, each stage corresponding to a chapter in the research project. The five stages are:

Colloquium Days

Your Doctor of Ministry degree concludes with a successful presentation and examination of your Ministry Transformation Project at what we call the Colloquium. This is a time of discussion and presentation that concludes your doctoral research and study.

During this time, you will present your questions and answers based on your research, but you will also hear your classmates’ presentations as well. Some think of the colloquium as an oral progress and process report, in which you outline your research questions, the steps you took to answer them, and the results.

The examination team is comprised of the participant’s faculty coach, your cohort colleagues and other faculty as needed. Examiners are selected based on their area of expertise and in collaboration between the mentor and candidate.

Colloquium days are scheduled just prior to your graduation.
