Building on a twenty-year partnership, Arrow Leadership and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary are pleased to announce an expanded opportunity for alumni of the Arrow Leadership Program to access Gordon-Conwell’s Doctor of Ministry program.
“The future looks even brighter with Arrow graduates now having more educational options for leadership education and formation, building on the solid foundation of the Arrow experience.” – Dr. Steven W. Klipowicz
This expanded partnership combines Arrow’s proven leadership development with the renowned theological education of Gordon-Conwell and enables academically qualified Arrow alumni to receive advanced standing in either the Christian Leadership or Pastoral Skills track. Leaders can continue their journey deeply focused on leadership (Christian Leadership track) or broaden their journey into larger pastoral issues of leadership, preaching, and care giving (Pastoral Skills track).
A graduate of both the Arrow Leadership Program and GCTS Doctor of Ministry, Dr. Steve Brown, Canadian President of Arrow Leadership remarks, “I believe these additional opportunities will benefit more Arrow leaders well into the future, provide more calendar entry points and locations as well as strengthen our long-time partnership with a world leader in theological education.”
Excited to see further opportunities for Arrow graduates to continue their leadership development through advanced educational pursuits, Dr. Steven W. Klipowicz, Director of Ministry Formation [GCTS] shares, “Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Charlotte is grateful for the 20 years of shared ministry with Arrow Leadership through the Arrow Doctor of Ministry program. The future looks even brighter with Arrow graduates now having more educational options for leadership education and formation, building on the solid foundation of the Arrow experience.”
Director of the Doctor of Ministry Program, Dr. David A. Currie adds, “Arrow and Gordon-Conwell’s Doctor of Ministry Program have grown up together, sharing many of the same core values and approaches to transforming not only ministries, but ministers. As in any healthy relationship, growth involves change, so I am delighted about the opportunities for growth that changes in the advanced standing program for Arrow graduates in the DMin Program will create, allowing not only more flexibility in terms of entry points into doctoral studies, but greater opportunities for specialization, either continuing a tight focus on leadership or opening up more fully in Pastoral Skills.”
