So, what’s next? Maybe this is your actual question. Maybe it’s your challenge. Perhaps it’s an invitation.

Regardless, the Claremont Mentoring D.Min. is a path to that answer –– even if you’re not quite sure of the question. This is why it’s called the Mentoring D.Min. Because sometimes next steps, career pivots and ministry reimagining require a guide.

A mentor. From spiritual care, or spiritually integrated psychotherapy, to new liturgical and ministry concepts, or fresh approaches to leadership, this 28-credit program turns your question into a major project –– supported by coursework to hone your goal, training to help your research, and 24 credits of electives that you choose to illuminate and energize your new direction. And of course, this highly individualized program provides an academic partner to advise, encourage, and educate you on the journey to what’s next.

A great theological education dismantles everything you assumed to be “right” and helps you rebuild with true understanding. My CST experience was life-altering. I am changed and on fire to transform the world.
