Step 1: Get Support, Accountability and Encouragement Once You Leave Campus
It's hard to stay on track with your DMin studies once you get off campus and back to the real world -- work, ministry, family, etc. Without maintaining a consistent reading and writing schedule while off campus, DMin students often find themselves stressed out & falling behind when completing their assignments for the next class.
Many also find that they lose focus in their research and experience writer's block. Others, simply need a safe space to ask questions regarding difficult theological concepts and methods of biblical exegesis.
Which is why we've created The DMin Support Group Facebook Group. This complimentary space is for any and all DMin students no matter where they are in the process.
Our FB community provides Insight, Support, Accountability and Encouragement as you progress through the DMin degree. We regularly highlight the tricks and tools to keep you on track while off campus so you can finish well without compromising your family, ministry or yourself.
Step 2: Start Right, To End Right
Beginning the DMin can be intimidating -- who knew there was so much involved in such a short-time?
Our You've Started, Now What Program helps busy DMin students strategize their DMin project and coursework such that everything they do feeds into their finally project practically and academically.
In individual private coaching sessions, students will:
Construct a blueprint for their project that maps coursework, ministry and life experience which will identify needed areas of research and writing;
Identify the mindsets and habits that may be causing them to self-sabotage their efforts; and
Create a schedule accountability system for progress that takes into consideration the multiple, competing priorities between school, work, ministry, family and life.
Step 3: Finish Strong by Getting the Help You Need To Bust Through Your Research & Writing Challenges for the Project Review or Project Dissertation.
DEVELOP THE MINDSET, HABITS, STRATEGIES, AND SKILLS IN A SUPPORTED, YET ACCOUNTABLE ENVIRONMENT, WILL HELP YOU FINISH YOUR WRITING AND HELP YOU DEAL WITH:
STRESS & ANXIETY
FEELING OVERWHELMED & DISCOURAGED
PROCRASTINATION & TIME MANAGEMENT
LACK OF SUPPORT
NOT KNOWING WHERE OR HOW TO BEGIN
YOU WANT TO BE AS EXCITED AND DETERMINED

"The DMin Coach"
Founder and Lead Coach, The Orchestrated Effect
Dr. Felicia LaBoy is the Lead Coach and Founder of The Orchestrated Effect, LLC, a coaching and consulting company that helps individuals, organizations, churches and communities move from being “good” to “great;” and from being “stuck” to being “unstuck.”
When Felicia was a doctoral student, she juggled being a bi-vocational pastor, a new wife and a caretaker for her dad. She knows what it is like to be aware that you need help, but don’t know exactly what is keeping you from excelling in school, ministry, and life. She learned the hard way that when school, family, and ministry are out of harmony, you may finish your degrees, but the investment of time and money is not maximized. She learned too that working this way often causes our health, relationships, and ministry to be compromised.
In addition to her own experience, as a professor and Associate Dean for DMin programs, Felicia watched how often promising students with exciting and potentially world-changing projects would quit because they felt as if they "just couldn't complete" the writing portion. Furthermore, she became growingly concerned that students who lagged behind and didn't finish their DMin projects were worse off for having started them because they now carried the burden of additional student loans.
Putting her academic, business, pastoral and coaching background to work, Felicia created the DMin Reboot & Finish Strong© program using the process she used to help dozens of DMin and doctoral students:
Discern the right program;
Leverage passion and real-world work/ministry experience with academic study; and
Knowing that busy DMin students need a system of regular support and accountability, structure, shortcuts, and lifehack tools to keep them on track, Felicia uses Zoom Group Conferencing and FB Private Groups to increase the chance for student success. Her structured approach is designed to benefit both students and the people they love and serve.
Dr. LaBoy believes in you and your higher purpose! By working with her to complete your DMin you experience the journey in a way that minimizes the stress, overwhelm and drains you so that you can be the community leader you are meant to be!
