Doctor of Ministry classes take place in the McCormick Theological Seminary building, which shares a campus with the Lutheran School of Theology in Chicago (LSTC). Classes are five-day intensives, generally run from early Monday afternoon to Friday midday, and may include evening sessions. While in Chicago, students will have access to the JKM library housed at LSTC. McCormick partners with nearby institutions to help provide low cost housing to students in town for course intensives. Please see the list of Area Guest Housing for location and price information, and contact the institutions listed for availability and reservations.
