“And this promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off-for all whom the Lord our God will call” (Acts 2:39).
My family and I will be traveling to Memphis; Tennessee this weekend to participate in my Graduation Ceremony from Harding School of Theology (HST). I will receive a Doctor of Ministry degree (DMin). Below is an excerpt of a chapel presentation given by the chairman (the man in charge of my DMin dissertation) of the spiritual journey of two doctoral students, one of which is me?
“I spoke in chapel yesterday and talked about you two. I reflected on both of your spiritual journeys that took both of you to faith while in college, to ministry, to HST, and ultimately to D.Min. Projects that required a deepening faith in God to be vulnerable, build trust, and extend your spiritual influence. Our mission at HST to challenge Christian leaders to deeper faith in God and higher standards of ministry and scholarship has been accomplished in you. It is always gratifying to see a mission accomplished.
I concluded with three things Peter Drucker said he learned from three of his mentors, who were all very different. (1) Treat people differently based on their strengths, (2) Set high standards but give people freedom and responsibility to do their jobs, and (3) Performance review must be honest, exacting and an integral part of the job. I found it interesting how the DMin process involved all three of these. You each sought to build on the strengths of people around you; we set high standards for the D.Min, but gave you freedom to do your ministry; and my reviews were exacting and honest--and you both responded extremely well to feedback.
I could not be more grateful to have you two as my last two D.Min dissertation projects. I have been richly blessed and cherish our continued partnership in the Gospel.”
Grace and peace, Evertt W. Huffard, PhD.
Personally, I am very grateful to have accomplished this milestone. It is a testimony to the verse written above.
