"Though the D.Min. program at Truett was academically rigorous, theologically sound, and spiritually stimulating, the best feature for me was its relational depth. The cohort model invited me to form lasting relationships with fellow ministers."
--Doug Jackson (D.Min. '06)

"One of the things I do regularly is to evaluate things I am doing or have done. Upon completing the D.Min process, I asked myself, "If I had to do it all over again, would I do it?" My answer--a resounding "YES." My time in the program has been an unforgettable experience."
--Brian Hill (D.Min. '07)

"The time and effort invested in the Truett D.Min. program continues to be a significant marker in the life of my family. God has used the Truett experience to prepare, to position and to leverage our lives for the Gospel in ways I could never have imagined."
--David Rogers (D.Min. '06)
