Presbytery supported the eduction of Jeff Seaton with an educational support grant in 2016. Jeff was granted his Doctor of Ministry degree from Duke Divinity School at Duke University, North Carolina in December 2016. The Reverend Doctor Jeff Seaton (or in abbreviation, Rev. Dr.) still answers to a simple “Jeff.”
Jeff’s studies focused on leadership in the modern church, and his doctoral dissertation is titled “Who’s Minding the Story: The United Church of Canada Meets A Secular Age.” The dissertation is available at the link.
This adds a perspective to the discussion as to where we go today and in the years to come as a United Church.
