This course assists students in responding, according to sound scriptural principles, to a rapidly changing culture and often confounding church scene. Attention is given to the biblical foundations of ministry, the development of mission, vision, and cultural responsiveness, the identification of calling, and the formation of core values. Students are guided through the process of developing a well-articulated philosophy of ministry.
CM 736 Principles of Discipleship (3)
This course is designed to assist students in grappling with the theological and practical dimensions of discipleship. Students explore discipleship from the Bible and supporting literature and undertake an assessment of the effectiveness of the formation of disciples in a contemporary ministry setting. This leads to the development of a plan of action for making disciples in the students’ current or future ministry contexts.
