Transformational Leadership is a new specialization for the Doctor of Ministry program which is designed for professionals in leadership positions who are interested in the opportunity to cultivate their inner lives, to take time apart for spiritual deepening, to build transformational leadership skills and to consider practical application of what leadership arising from a core of spiritual groundedness might look like.

The Director of this program, The Rev. Dr. Susan Fowler, states that, “All of us are called to be transformational leaders. This new Doctor of Ministry degree in Transformational Leadership prepares leaders to discover the spiritual roots of their call to leadership, to acquire knowledge and skills to practice values-based leadership, and to work collaboratively with others to effect enduring transformation in personal, communal and global realms.”

This D.Min. specialization is interdisciplinary in nature, combining the principles of liberating education with an action-reflection model of praxis that is experiential, reflective, and adaptive. The program consists of 36 credits earned through completion of 10 courses and an Exit Project or Non-Project Option.

    I can’t believe the GTF is offering this degree! I am so excited. When I earned the Ed.D. from the GTF, this was the precise program that I was attempting to put together. Now, it’s all there waiting for me….and with Dr. Susan Fowler as director. I couldn’t think of a better combination: an outstanding, relevant program in transformational leadership; an incredible program director; a learning community second to none—the GTF!

    I am giving serious consideration to enrolling! Very serious consideration, indeed.
