Interdenominational Theological Center's (ITC) Dr. Steven Rasor will be honored as he retires after more than 28 years of
contributions to the school. His work included serving as professor of Sociology of Religion and director of the Doctor of Ministry Programs.
The retirement celebration will include a celebration luncheon followed by ITC's First Annual Doctor of Ministry Conference On Friday, May 10, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The theme of the conference is "Leaders Impacting the Church and the Global Community through the Doctor of Ministry Education."
The Doctor of Ministry Program offers clergy of all denominations the highest professional degree available. The goal of the Doctor of Ministry Programs at ITC is to attract, support, educate, and nurture women and men in leadership in Christ's church and the world who require professional education beyond the level of the M.Div. and who are capable of fulfilling the mission of the institution.
The degree program is offered in collaboration with the Atlanta Theological Association (ATA) to qualified men and women currently engaged in ministry. The ATA is composed of Interdenominational Theological Center, Candler School of Theology, Columbia Theological Seminary, Erskine Theological Seminary, and the Georgia Association for Pastoral Care.
The program has three primary tracks related to the Church and Ministry, Military Chaplaincy, or Specialty in Pastoral Care.
