I am in the Doctor of Ministry Program at United Theological Seminary with a focus in Pastoral Care and Counseling. Having received my Master of Divinity with this particular focus has permitted me to attain experience and training in a field that is needed. I enjoy working within this field and look forward to assisting other ministers who desire to enter this field. This program requires alot of introspection, reflection, and research, not to mention tons of reading. It is a program that will prepare me for advanced and applied research in the field and i look forward to continuing my studies. My goal is to teach within a seminary or Bible college Pastoral Care and Counseling. As a current Hospice Chaplain, this field will continue to strengthen my provision of care to patients and families experiencing end-of-life and loss issues.
