COGOP SPANISH D.MIN. STUDENTS COMPLETE FIRST RESIDENCY WITH WTS

During February 18 through March 1, 2019, seventeen COGOP leaders, along with six other students from other denominations, met in the Dominican Republic to launch the first Spanish Doctor of Ministry cohort in partnership with Western Theological Seminary. These students included presbyters, national overseers, pastors, and church leaders from seven South American nations, four Central American nations, and the International Offices. Dr. Alvin Padilla, Academic Dean and Vice President of Academic Affairs, was present to welcome students into the program and provide an orientation. The two courses for this first residency focused on the Cross and Joy in Ministry (study from the book of Philippians) with Dr. Eldin Villafañe and Growing Healthy Churches with Dr. Hector Rodriguez. Students enjoyed rich fellowship, times of worship, and challenging instruction to sharpen their leadership skills as they serve in God’s kingdom.
