ADC to Offer Doctor of Ministry in Prague

International Baptist Theological Seminary in Prague

Acadia’s rapidly growing Doctor of Ministry programme is set to expand again. Beginning in the fall of 2012, ministry leaders based in Europe and elsewhere will be able to study toward an Acadia DMin in Prague, Czech Republic.

This new international Doctor of Ministry programme is a joint initiative of Acadia Divinity College (ADC), Canadian Baptist Ministries (CBM), the International Baptist Theological Seminary (IBTS), and the European Baptist Federation (EBF). Students admitted to the programme will take courses at the IBTS campus in Prague and will also take courses at Acadia’s Wolfville, Nova Scotia teaching site in Canada.

Dr. Jeff Carter will provide leadership for the new programme as part of his role as a member of the Global Field Staff of CBM. He will continue to serve as Youth Ministry Training Coordinator for the EBF and as a Lecturer at both IBTS and ADC.

Acadia offers Canada’s largest Doctor of Ministry programme, enrolling students from more than 20 denominations and 30 different ministry vocations. Students in the programme live in all Canadian provinces as well as in the United States and overseas.

“We are delighted to partner with other ministry organizations who have a heart for encouraging and equipping seasoned ministry leaders,” says ADC’s Director of Doctoral Studies, Dr. Bruce Fawcett. “This partnership will be great for our Canadian DMin students since it will allow them the opportunity to study in Prague as part of their DMin experience, and in some of their classes in Wolfville they will now have the opportunity to connect with Christian leaders from Europe.”

Applications will be received starting in October 2011 for fall 2012 admission. For more information, contact Dr. Jeff Carter
