Greetings everyone! I hope and pray everyone out there had a very Merry Christmas! And will have a Happy New Year.
I was talking with one of my brother-in-laws yesterday about work and ministry. I hope to be more involved in a campus ministry outreach. Start one up at the church I already actively attend, or elsewhere.
I’ve thought off and on about graduate school. Harding University has a Graduate School of Religion located in Memphis, TN (now called Harding School of Theology). Lipscomb University has a Graduate School program on their campus in Nashville, TN (called Hazelip School of Theology). Both schools offer graduate degrees with an emphasis on campus ministry. Lipscomb’s Graduate School has a Doctorate in Ministry program with an emphasis on Missional and Spiritual Development.
I’ve thought if I could attend Harding’s or Lipscomb’s Graduate Schools and earn the Master of Divinity degree with a major in Campus Ministry (both Memphis and Nashville have a lot of colleges in their cities). And then attend Lipcomb’s Graduate program to work on the Doctorate in Ministry with a major in Missional and Spiritual Development. The doctorate thesis would be evangelism on campus, helping the students to be missionaries on campus, and helping them see themselves as missionaries in the jobs, communities, and churches when they graduate from college and start their new vocations.
Now I should say, this is all thoughts in my head. Whether or not I can do it or no, I hope and pray there is someone in the world today who can and will do it. And do it all to God’s glory.
As always thoughts, comments, questions, etc are welcomed and encouraged.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone! God bless. Grace and Peace.
