FUND-RAISING AND FRIENDS FOR CAMPUS MINISTRY
Campus ministries can learn more about fund-raising and board development through a cooperative effort by the Ecumenical Campus Ministry Team (ECMT). The new program offers training seminars, a monthly publication, webinars, and mentoring. The service will be provided at no cost except for travel expenses. This program is offered by the National Council of Churches' Ecumenical Campus Ministry Team.



DAVIS-PUTTER SCHOLARSHIP FUND
The Davis-Putter Scholarship Fund provides grants to students actively working for peace and justice. These need-based scholarships are awarded to those able to do academic work at the university level and who are part of the progressive movement on the campus and in the community. Early recipients worked for civil rights, against McCarthyism, and for peace in Vietnam. Recent grantees have been active in the struggle against racism, sexism, homophobia, and other forms of oppression; building the movement for economic justice; and creating peace through international anti-imperialist solidarity.

DOCTOR OF MINISTRY PROGRAM - Campus Ministries
The Doctor of Ministry, a thirty academic hour program, is a natural continuing education step for dedicated clergy who want to pursue focused study. Applicants must have a strong academic record in their Master of Divinity from an institution accredited by the Association of Theological Schools, and have been in active ministry for three years since graduation. The first twenty-four academic hours are required classes. The hours of elective work are to be used to pinpoint the disciplines that will be used in one's D.Min. project. Beyond earning the degree, the Seminary hopes Doctor of Ministry graduates will function as resource persons for the local and regional church.

Details are at www.WesleySem.edu. For further information on any of the Doctor of Ministry programs, contact Dr. Lew Parks at (202) 885-6481 or email him at: lparks@wesleysem.edu
