Course Description

This course is a study in the essential nature of pastoral ministry and God’s call to fulfill the work of Christ. Students are challenged to rethink traditional ecclesiology and reshape vocational goals through a paradigm of church as family, shared eldership, co-vocational service, and generational leadership. Students will learn to rightly handle their Divine-authority and apply this new paradigm to the practical elements of ministry including the ordinances, child dedications, weddings, funerals, and worship services. — 3 units.
