    Doctor of Ministry in Ecumenism and Interreligious Dialogue


    Yesterday I had an enjoyable lunch with Dr. Lew Parks, professor at Wesley and Director of the Doctor of Ministry programs.

    Lew has been my ‘ally’ for many years in providing a Doctor of Ministry Degree in Ecumenism and Interreligious Dialogue. Over a decade ago we began our collaboration in training the next generation of ecumenical leaders.

    It has been a fruitful and happy 13 years–we both came ‘on-board’ in our respective positions at the same time. We recognized the need to encourage the next generation of leaders.

    The Consortium ecumenists and Wesley Seminary have been collaborating for over a decade. The first cohort has graduated and is working in the field.

    The second cohort is working its way through the courses right now.

    We are thinking that in a couple years a new cohort might begin.

    Lew is a very knowledgeable person–and a great guy to talk to.
    He is a real ecumenical leader.
