Functional Diversity, Eric M. Brown Dec 2005

Functional Diversity, Eric M. Brown

Doctor of Ministry

The question at the heari of this dissertation is, "can it be different?" The "it" is the way church is organized, worship happens, and the very flavor of the church in the United Methodist Church in Oregon and Idaho. Today, church is generally organized following the traditional Anglo experience. The hymns, food, and organizational patterns generally follow the patterns of the white, English-speaking majority in the churches. A different formula would be one that is more multicultural and multiethnic. In this dissertation, the different way of organizing and thinking of church is called functional diversity.

Functional diversity is explored through ...

Connexions: Models For Creative Collaboration Between Church And Academy In The Twenty-First Century, Anthony L. Blair Oct 2005

Connexions: Models For Creative Collaboration Between Church And Academy In The Twenty-First Century, Anthony L. Blair

Doctor of Ministry

The purpose of this dissertation is to analyze the historic relationship between church and academy (defined as Christian higher education). Although certain external forces, including the decline in denominational identity, the power of market forces, and the growing philosophical/theological tensions between the lectern and the pulpit, have driven the academy and the church apart in recent decades, the claim of this study is that these same forces can be harnessed to draw them together in a more collaborative relationship in the twenty-first century.

Chapter One delineates the scope and nature of Christian higher education in North America, through both ...

Using Students Consultants To Re-Envision Teaching Christian History And Theology, Dan Brunner Jul 2005

Using Students Consultants To Re-Envision Teaching Christian History And Theology, Dan Brunner

Faculty Publications - Portland Seminary

When it came time to reevaluate and restructure the introductory year in Christian history and theology, I decided to use a roundtable of student consultants to help me in that work. Our research and reflection focused on the impact of postmodern thinking and learning, feedback from pastors in ministry, a desire to bring appropriate praxis into academically focused courses, and a hope to make greater use of technology, This article discusses the consultative process and sketches out key learnings from student research. Concluding reflections focus on technology, a topical, praxis-oriented approach to teaching, the process of utilizing student advisors, and ...

A Process Of Restoration For Clergy Guilty Of Sexual Misconduct, Carol Hutchinson May 2005

A Process Of Restoration For Clergy Guilty Of Sexual Misconduct, Carol Hutchinson

Faculty Publications - Department of Professional Studies

Sexual misconduct on the part of clergy is not a new phenomenon. Nevertheless the Church in general lacks a concept of restoration that provides spiritual and emotional healing of an offender within the context of the redemptive community of faith. This dissertation is intended to demonstrate how Scripture, church history, theology and psychology support restoration of fallen clergy. The dissertation will go on then to describe what a process of restoration would include.

The dissertation begins and ends with case studies. Both cases deal with actual events though names and some details have been changed. The first case demonstrates some ...

Mentoring With Dignity: A Plan For Pastors And Churches To Support Women In Recovery From Domestic Violence, Martha F. Williams Apr 2005

Mentoring With Dignity: A Plan For Pastors And Churches To Support Women In Recovery From Domestic Violence, Martha F. Williams

Doctor of Ministry

This work addresses the need for the church, fully supported by the pastor and leaders, to minister to women who attend church and are suffering in abusive marriages. The Mentoring With Dignity recovery program provides a simple, easily accessible solution that can be readily implemented by churches and is built of commonly known, widely acceptable and respected components: Twelve Step and Stephen Ministers. The church must work for compassion and justice in any area that takes away freedom, stifles life, or invalidates persons. Violence against another in whatever form it takes is an offense against the integrity of life so ...


Jesus' Methodology Of Storytelling Is An Effective Means Of Communication In Our Emerging Culture, Peter Alvin Balaban Apr 2005

Jesus' Methodology Of Storytelling Is An Effective Means Of Communication In Our Emerging Culture, Peter Alvin Balaban

Doctor of Ministry

It is Sunday morning, and they come. They are Lutheran, either by heritage, by family choice, or because they have found their home here. Though they gather as generations before them, they are not the same. They live in a world where information is not what they seek but rather understanding of all the information that assaults them. The pastor steps forward to share a message.
