Since I became a member of the Association for Doctor of Ministry Education (ADME) eleven years ago, I have been blessed personally and professionally by the group.
The ADME Executive Board is committed to raising the standard of DMin education among Association of Theological Schools (ATS) accredited schools by providing a number of DMin specific opportunities for our members.
Here are some of the key benefits of membership:
– ADME is the only professional association for theological education that holds affiliate membership with ATS in the United States and Canada.
– ADME hosts an annual conference each Spring, designed to address issues pertinent to DMin programs and their directors, with an aim to sharing and improving best practices in all member programs.
– The Journal of Christian Ministry is ADME’s annual publication. The journal provides both a forum for theological reflection in the training for and practice of Christian ministry at the highest level as well as an opportunity for members to publish peer-reviewed articles and book book reviews.
– Because of our strategic partnership with ATS, ADME members have regular opportunities to consult with accreditation experts in relation to the formation and revision of the DMin degree program standards.
Perhaps more than anything else, the members of ADME understand what a DMin director does. There are about 200 people in North America who do what DMin directors do, and ADME members want to help each other do it better
We hope you will join us to make all our programs better.
