The ministry project is a main focus of the NBTS D.Min. degree. It is typically a program, process or policy that is not a piece of writing alone, but a timeline of action that candidates take in the community. The project can take many forms such as programs for prison inmates or community volunteers or the drafting and advocacy of a new public policy. Seminarians lead a covenant group--a team of members of congregations and communities including teachers, leaders, healthcare professionals, social service providers, law enforcement professionals--who commit to the project and provide support and direction.
