Pastor Lacey is entering the final writing phase of her Doctor of Ministry degree program at Columbia Theological Seminary. For the last four years, Lacey has taken courses in a variety of disciplines to complete her course credits. This week begins the Project Proposal Workshop (July 26- August 13). This online course is designed to help her narrow in on a research question and formulate a future writing plan. The thesis will take about a year to complete. She asks for your prayers as she finds the balance between her roles as an eager student and a working pastor.
