On behalf of ADME – the Association of Doctor of Ministry Education – welcome to the ADME website.  As an active member of ADME for the past thirteen years, I’ve been privileged to serve on the ADME Board of Directors for the past five years.  I’m honored and humbled also to be elected President for a third term.  The ADME Executive Board is committed to raising the standard of DMin Education among ATS accredited schools.  In being responsive to you, the Executive Board is working to improve our web presence, expand our membership base, and present programming designed to assist DMIN Directors and their staffs in becoming more aware of “best practices” in Doctor of Ministry education.

We look forward to our 2017 annual conference, April 6-8, 2017, hosted by New York Theological Seminary.  Dr. Peter Scazzero, Teaching Pastor at New Life Fellowship Church in Queens, NY, and founder of Emotionally Healthy Spirituality, will be our guest plenary speaker.  Dr. Scazzero will speak three times on the theme of “Equipping for Emotionally Healthy Ministry.”

To our long-time ADME members – thanks for your support through the years.  To all DMin Directors who have not obtained ADME membership, we invite you to join us as we raise the standard of DMin education.


Reggie R. Ogea, ThD; Associate Dean, Professional Doctoral Programs; Professor of Leadership and Pastoral Ministry; New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, New Orleans, LA.
