Biennial — Three hours — Lois Barrett
A descriptive and analytic study of the settings, ideas and personalities that shaped Anabaptism within the context of the early 16th-century church and society. Bearing in mind the social and political setting, the course will highlight doctrine, ethics, mission, sacramental life and spirituality in various streams of Anabaptism, noting their common and contrasting characteristics. The relevance of this heritage for contemporary ecumenical, doctrinal, congregational and personal life will be assessed.
Biennial — Two hours — Rachel Miller Jacobs
This course on the ministry of Christian formation in congregational life examines two central questions: How is faith nurtured to maturity in congregational life? And how are leaders equipped to guide the congregation in its growth? Focusing on three essential and interrelated arenas of congregational life — worship, community and mission — the course explores key biblical and theological foundations for Christian formation, provides guidance for a variety of formation ministries and introduces practical tools for nurturing growth in faith for leaders and for groups.
Biennial — Two hours — Daniel Schipani
This course begins with a biblical and historical survey of pastoral care. It explores theory and practice and encourages students to develop their own theological understandings of this field and a model of pastoral care. Pastoral care is considered in various circumstances and contexts. Attention is paid to communication and listening skills, interpersonal relationships, helping relationships and interventions that facilitate healing and growth.
