PITTSBURGH THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY
Director of the Doctor of Ministry Program
Pittsburgh Theological Seminary invites applications for its next Director of the Doctor of Ministry Program. This is a full-time, non-tenure track faculty position with significant administrative responsibilities, including travel to domestic and international sites where courses are offered. The Seminary’s D.Min. program currently enrolls students in seven focus areas (Urban Change, Missional Leadership, Science and Theology, Christian Spirituality, Parish, Reformed Theology, and Eastern Christian.) An innovative and creative leader, the next Director of the D.Min. program will work with the faculty at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and partner institutions to assess current focus areas and consider new opportunities. A mentor to the program’s students, the Director should possess enthusiasm to encourage theological and contextual scholarship in ministry.
The position is primarily administrative but includes the possibility of teaching in the D.Min. program or in other academic programs at the seminary. The ideal candidate will have an earned doctorate (D.Min., Ed.D., or Ph.D or equivalent), a Masters of Divinity or equivalent, significant experience in full-time ministry, and administrative experience or outstanding promise. In addition, the candidate should have the capacity to work cooperatively with faculty in order to integrate the D.Min. program fully into the life and work of the Seminary and to maintain in-person and distance learning pedagogies that meet the needs of the program’s students. The candidate should have experience or demonstrate a commitment to academic partnerships with churches and with seminaries outside Pittsburgh, especially in the Global South. Rank is negotiable, salary competitive, and appointment comes with full benefits, including the standard provision for sabbatical research. Women and members of historically underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply.
Interested candidates should provide a cover letter, a complete CV or resume, and the names and contact information (phone and e-mail) for three references, none of whom will be contacted until a later stage of the search or without the formal permission of the candidate. Application materials should be submitted to the attention of the D.Min. Search Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are encouraged by July 5 and will continue to be accepted until the position is filled.
