DTS-Guatemala (DMin Extension)

The DMin extension in Guatemala City is the Seminary’s Spanish language DMin program for Hispanic leaders in the United States, Latin America, and Spain. It is offered on the campus of Seminario Teológico Centroamericano (SETECA) in Guatemala City. The courses offered in the Spanish DMin program are the same as those offered in Dallas, but are contextualized for Hispanic ministry. All courses in the Spanish DMin program can be completed at SETECA. Interested students should contact the DMin office for more information.
