An opportunity to transform your ministry for the better might sound too good to be true, but that is exactly what St. Vladimir’s Seminary’s Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) program was set up to be. And its most recent graduates want you to see fruits of the D.Min. program for yourself.

On Wednesday, November 14, we are beginning another round of webinars featuring D.Min. graduates presenting their final projects. These webinars—free and open to the public—are meant to give people a taste of what the D.Min. program offers and what it can do for your ministry.

While registration is free, space is limited, so sign up through this link if you are interested:

The next presentation will feature Very Rev. Dr. David G. Subu, pastor of St. Mary Orthodox Church in Falls Church, Virginia. Fr. David’s topic for the webinar session will be based on his project, “Repent and Recover: Addiction Recovery and Traditional Christian Ascetic Principles for Pastors and Their Parishioners.”

"Many have identified the connection between the modern affliction of addiction and what the ascetic Fathers call 'the Passions,'” Fr. David explained. “If addictions are a form of the passions, we should find that successful principles of recovery from addiction should also be useful in healing the passions and habitual sinful behaviors.”

“This project examines the dynamics of the passions and the scientific study of addiction treatments and develops a course of recovery-minded repentance from sin that can help both priests and those under their spiritual care to actualize the benefits of the ascetic tradition in their lives for overcoming sin, God helping."

Registrants for Fr. David’s presentation will receive a link to join the webinar on the morning of November 14.
