Episcopal Asiamerica Ministries

Episcopal Divinity School (EDS) and Episcopal Asiamerica Ministries (EAM) have partnered to offer the opportunity for a theological education resulting in a Doctor of Ministry degree that addresses the specific needs of Asian and Asian-American clergy in the Episcopal Church.

The arrangement offers significant financial support as well as the opportunity to study with prominent Asian-American theologians. Students in the EAM program are expected to include in their curriculum research on Asian culture, Asian-American immigration, and the engagement of Asian Churches in ministry in the context of American culture. Applicants for this program must be currently working as ordained Episcopal clergy and must be in contact with the Rev. Dr. Winfred Vergara, Missioner for Asiamerica Ministries, prior to applying to the DMin program through the regular EDS admissions process.
