Memphis Theological Seminary is currently accepting applications for the Doctor of Ministry in Land, Food, and Faith Formation. This dynamic and innovative low-residency program is open to students who are passionate about the intersections of ministry with agricultural practices, food justice, care for the land, and the role of faith communities in both rural and urban settings.
Students in the Land, Food, and Faith Formation D.Min will explore the theological and ethical dimensions of land and its use, the role of food in our lives, and the ways faith communities both shape and are shaped by their relationship with land and food. This program will provide theological resources and practical models for the practice of ministry in faith communities which seek to relate more intentionally to the care of land, food, and all living creatures.
Instructors in this program are at the forefront of food justice and creation care across the country like Rev. Dr. Heber Brown, III, a public speaker, community organizer, and social entrepreneur who started the Black Church Food Security Network in Baltimore, Maryland, Rev. Nurya Love Parish of Plainsong Farm, and Rev. Dr. Noah Campbell, the director of the Memphis Center for Food and Faith.
Applications are currently being accepted until April 30.
The first year’s courses will be held in June 2020 and January 2021.
