We are continuing to offer alumni/ae of the program an opportunity during the summers to rekindle the enrichment, learning, and growth experienced in the ACTS D.Min in Preaching program. Alumni/ae are invited to consider returning to Hyde Park in Chicago to engage in one of the elective courses.

Professors teaching the elective courses during the 2015 Summer Residency include::

  • David Bartlett - Preaching Apologetics                                                                       
  • Claudio Carvalhaes Preaching from the Margins of the World: Preaching and Prophecy                                        
  • Lynn Japinga - Preaching About Women in the Old Testament
  • Eun Joo Kim -Preaching in Globalized Contexts
  • Frank Thomas - Preaching as Celebration                                                  

Courses with available space are offered as a Continuing Education Unit (CEU) for alumnae/i interested in joining the program participants in an elective course!

Expectations for a CEU include full participation in the week of class including the readings. The follow-up sermon, taping, and paper would not be required to receive a CEU for a course. 

The cost for taking a course is $300 plus transportation, housing, and meals. Housing information will be available from the Program Office in the same way as when you were in the program.

Please consider this unique opportunity. For more information contact the program office.
