I was asked back in 2008 to design a D.Min program for George Fox Seminary.  The Leadership and Global Perspectives (LGP) D.Min then launched in 2010.

I was overcomes with joy and delight at seeing the first LGP students receive their doctorates last weekend. It was a privilege to spend 3 years learning with this first cohort, at the intersection of their lives, ministry and research.

Thank you LGP1 for taking the risk of being the first students in the LGP, for being guinea pigs for much of the program, and helping us make it even better for new students.  You rock.

The current and incoming students to the LGP continue to be some of the most amazing people I have met.  I look forward to being at their graduations!
