What Will I Study?

We offer the most comprehensive approach to serving spiritual needs in the mission of God.

A survey of Missio Dei, the Mission of God, explores Salvation History through the redemptive vision of God. The student will learn how God is reconciling all of creation unto himself in the person and work of Jesus Christ. Students will also observe God at work through His people in mission.

This course explores the spiritual dimension of missional engagement in the post-Christendom world. Students will discover practical and creative ways of deepening their personal spirituality allowing more engagement with not-yet Christians and the development of authentic missional community. Resources will include readings, video interviews with practitioners, creative spiritual practices, real-life experimentation and weekly Q & A reports.

This course is will assist students in discovering the various forms of chaplaincy ministry, explore the roots and development of chaplaincy ministry, to understand the legal basis of chaplaincy, and to understand the current issues in chaplain ministry today.

This course explores the foundational information needed for effective pastoral care. The course will provide a survey of Clinical Pastoral Education. At the end of the course, the student will be able to assess a person's faith development in a pluralistic setting and learn how to offer spiritual care to people from various faith backgrounds.

What does it mean to be a spiritual caregiver? How does one provide spiritual care in a world increasingly resistant to organized religion and institutional structures? This course engages what it means to be an instrument of Christ in a world with increasing meaninglessness and hopelessness. In this course, students will examine the biblical foundations of spiritual caregiving, the interpersonal development of spiritual caregivers, and the capacity of spiritual caregiving to generate personal and societal transformation. This foundational course prepares spiritual caregivers to go on towards a caregiving specialty.

This course explores the nature of communication within and among cultures. The class will also examine attitudes toward diversity that lead to stereotyping, discrimination, and prejudice, and explore ways to overcome barriers that separate people from one another.
