Spring Course Offering

And yes, of course, we have some exciting new courses on deck for the Spring. Check these out! 

COUN400 Conflict Resolution: This course will investigate a Biblical and practical understanding of conflict. It analyses the conflict cycle and styles of conflict management and intervention strategies to help students comprehend how to use conflict for positive change. 

MIN465 Accessibility and Inclusivity of Children and Youth with Disabilities: This course will explore how ministry leaders can best serve children and youth with disabilities. Students will learn about the various experiences of young people with disabilities (physical, neurological, and otherwise) and how to design children’s church environments that provide inclusivity, accessibility, and growth for young people with disabilities.

MIS410 Contextualized Theology: Contextual theology and the process of contextualization relate to the knowledge of God, an unchanging God who reveals himself uniquely within specific contexts. Guided by the Holy Spirit, God’s missionary people communicate gospel truth in an ever-changing world. This course explores the ways in which culture intersects with and informs the task of theology. 

MIS103 World Religions: Designed to equip students with an overview of various major world religions, this course seeks to stir a passion for communicating Christ more effectively and demonstrate the value of building bridges with people of other religions.

MIN440 Formation of the Children’s Worship Leader: This course builds on the foundations of the Children and Worship course (MIN340). Students will learn to develop in their own personal growth and spiritual formation as worship leaders. Students will learn about leading teams in children’s worship and how to steward the stage well, strengthening them as communicators and shaping their hearts to shepherd those they are leading in worship.
