The concentration in Global Mission Leadership is culturally contextualized and is taught in sponsoring field locations outside the North American Division. Effective starting 2015, the Global Mission Leadership concentration is no longer available.
The mission statement of the Seminary reads:
The Seventh-day-Adventist Theological Seminary is one of the most culturally diverse seminaries in North America. Approximately 40% of on-campus enrollment are international students. The SDA Theological Seminary faculty also reflects an international flavor. In response to the needs expressed by leaders in the international headquarters of the SDA denomination, the Doctor of Ministry program determines to be a global program preparing participants for global service. Participants from outside the United States often join cohorts within the United States, and the program is experienced in providing international cohort sites as well. Further, by teaching at an extension site, we increase the number of those who will become active in leadership within their home countries.
The learning modalities to be included in the concentration’s pedagogy are:
