What Will I Study?

We offer the most comprehensive approach to serving military families in the mission of God.

Explores the way biblical virtues of hospitality and fellowship shape who Christians are and how they may extend hospitality to others in their homes and in the household of faith as a means of participating in the mission of God in an unhospitable world.

Life in the military embraces a culture distinct from civilian life to the extent that it has a strong influence over veterans throughout their lifespan. To understand and work with military members, veterans, and their families, one must understand this culture and language. This course will examine the formative and pervasive military culture.

Women have taken an active role in war as political leaders, supporters of the home front, in military support roles, and more recently as direct combatants. Women also have been victimized during war and displaced from their homes and families by aggressive military and domestic elements. This course will examine the changing role of women in the military and how women have been affected by aggression and war.

Leveraging community, governmental, and private resources is a way to enhance military support for military families in an era of constrained resources. Students will learn how to build collaborative relationships with these resources to better understand them, how they work, and how military families can be assisted.

The role of the advocate supporting military families, including how to identify and relate to military families, develop support groups, and relate to their special needs will be explored.

What resources are available to assist the military family advocate? In a time of constrained resources one individual or organization can’t provide for every need military families may face. In this course students will be exposed to the major governmental and private organizations available to assist military advocates and will also explore how to locate and leverage local and regional assets.
