School of Urban Ministries

The School of Urban Ministries on the Florida Dunnam Campus offers an interdisciplinary and intercultural approach to complex issues facing the church and its relationship to increasingly multicultural contexts. It aims to equip students in developing a strong foundation for ministry in a complex interplay of local and global forces that form and inform our increasingly multi-layered urban contexts. The School of Urban Ministries believes that a transformative, effective and, sustainable response to God’s call to ministry in today’s world begins with a two-prong process of intent listening and learning. This listening and learning happens at many levels of students’ seminary journey and, especially, through a communal process that includes opportunities for bridge-building across local and global lines.

The School of Urban Ministries shares the following programs with the other four schools of Asbury Theological Seminary:

  • Doctor of Ministry
  • Master of Divinity
  • Master of Arts in Biblical Studies
  • Master of Arts in Christian Leadership
  • Master of Arts in Christian Ministries
  • Master of Arts in Pastoral Counseling
  • Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Counseling
  • Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling
  • Certificate in Christian Studies

This means that these programs are available to all students registered on the Florida Dunnam Campus. It also signifies that the goals articulated for core courses and core electives under the various schools also pertain to the School of Urban Ministries.
