The Wesleyan / Methodist Studies concentration within the Doctorate of Ministry (D.Min.) in Transformative Leadership program launches in January 2014.
"CRCDS has a long history of serving pastors and people form the United Methodist Church tradition. This new program builds upon and continues what we have been doing for a long time. This development has also come to pass in response to a significant amount of interest in Wesleyan / Methodist Studies and inquiries about programs here."
– Prof. John R. Tyson, Director of United Methodist Studies and Professo of Church History
The Wesleyan / Methodist-focused degree will be taught as one-week blocks by Professor Tyson and by nationally-renowned Wesleyan / Methodist Studies guest scholars, including Dick Heitzenrater (Duke University Divinity School) , Elaine Heath (Perkins School of Theology, SMU) , Chris Evans (Boston University School of Theology), John Wigger (University of Missouri ), Jennifer Woodruff Tait (United Theological Seminary) and Tom Albin (Dean of the Upper Room).
D.Min. programs at CRCDS include a two-week schedule of courses taught in January and June of each year. Students come to campus and engage in intensive classroom study and instruction lead by CRCDS faculty. In addition to being a faculty member, Prof. Tyson is also Pastor at the Arcade UMC (Niagara Frontier District).
