Springfield, Mo.—June 30, 2004—The Assemblies of God Theological Seminary congratulates three of its administrators on the completion of the doctor of ministry (D.Min.) degree.

Mario Guerreiro, director of enrollment management, earned a D.Min. from Ashland Theological Seminary on June 5, a degree which he started before joining the AGTS team in July of 2003. His project was entitled “A New Dawn: A Seminar for Pastors on How to Relate to Newcomers Who Are Members of a Minority Group.”

Prior to entering the ministry, Dr. Guerreiro was employed with a Fortune 500 computer-manufacturing firm in roles ranging from compensation analyst to project manager. Since then he has served a number of churches as senior pastor. Dr. Guerreiro serves as the chairperson of the Association of Theological Schools SPAN (Student Personnel Administrators Network) committee. In addition, he has served the association by participating on the race relations task force. Born in India, Mario grew up in Mozambique, Africa, and is fluent in Portuguese.

Paul Martinez, director of development, and Randy Walls, director of continuing education, were awarded D.Min. degrees on May 1 during commencement at AGTS. Dr. Martinez’ project was entitled “Building Effective Ministry Teams for Aspiring Church Planters.” Dr. Walls’ project was entitled “Organic Spirituality: An Organizing Principle and Assessment Instrument for Christian Discipleship.”

Dr. Martinez has served AGTS since January 2002. Previous ministry included church planting in Orange County, Calif., and serving as associate pastor and business administrator at First Family Church in Albuquerque, N.M.

Since entering pastoral ministry in 1977, Dr. Walls has served congregations in Missouri, Arkansas, Illinois and Rhode Island. His ministry has been characterized by a passion for church planting, spiritual formation and engaging with the cultural context of the church.

AGTS is one of the world’s leading Pentecostal seminaries with one of the ten largest doctor of ministry programs in the nation. For more information, contact Jennifer Hall at 417-268-1024 or
