This month, several of the students who were part of our inaugural Doctor of Ministry classes in July 2009 will be completing their required coursework and preparing to begin their major written projects. We were pleased to offer courses on Missions and Evangelism with Dr. Steve Lawson and on the Use of the Old Testament in the New Testament with Dr. D.A. Carson.
This Summer, Dr. R.C. Sproul and Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr. will be co-teaching the course on the doctrine of justification (July 11–15). Dr. Dennis Johnson of Westminster Seminary in California will be teaching our preaching class (July 18–22). Next January, Dr. Ron Gleason, author of a new biography of Herman Bavinck, will be joining us to teach the Reformed Philosophy of Ministry class, and Ligonier Teaching Fellow Dr. Sinclair Ferguson will be returning to teach our class on Worship. In the Summer of 2012, Dr. Robert Letham, author of The Holy Trinity, will be joining us to teach a class on the doctrine of the Trinity and its significance for Christian worship.
We are thankful to all of these men for their willingness to serve pastors in this way. We are also grateful for the pastors who have been working through this demanding program.
One of these men, Pastor Drew Dinardo has said of the program:
I cannot conceive of a better institution to continue biblical, theological, and pastoral education than Ligonier Academy (D.Min). I have found the course selection ideal, the professors exceptional, class reading and instruction insightful, and the interaction with other like-minded pastors edifying. The spiritual and intellectual benefits to me personally, as well as to the congregation which I serve, have been incalculable. If you are searching for a degree program that is biblically and theologically grounded, intellectually demanding, ministry focused, philosophically practical, and pastor-schedule sensitive, look no further.
If you are a Pastor seeking further training from a Reformed perspective, the Ligonier Academy D.Min. program is designed for you.

Because the D.Min. program serves the educational goals of pastors, missionaries, and others in full-time ministry, admission is granted only to ordained men who possess a Master of Divinity degree or its equivalent and three years of ministry experience. Exceptions to these admission requirements are considered on a case-by-case basis, and in such cases admission may be granted only on a provisional basis.
