ministry setting.
CCL101 The Soul of Christian LeadershipDr. Susan Douglas & Rev. Katie IveyTuesday, 6:30-8:30pm, CST
As servant leaders, we are called to demonstrate character, integrity, and courage in all we do, while building relationships based on mutuality, authenticity, and trust. This requires us to understand ourselves and our impact on others. We must also be aware of the areas in which we are most skilled and of those where we need support to be fully successful. We need to understand others, including how we develop our faith and nurture our spirituality.
CCL106 Contemporary Issues in the ChurchRev. Zach LambertMonday, 7-9pm CST
Contemporary Issues in the Church will focus on the most pressing social and spiritual issues facing Christians today. We will cover racial justice, Christian nationalism, LGBTQ+ theology and practice, gender justice, and more. The goal is for students to leave the class with a high-level understanding of these issues, undergirded by Scripture, and with practical resources to help others navigate them.
CRM101 Ministry in the Rural ContextDr. Jonathan LeMaster-SmithTuesday, 7-9:30pm, CST
Rural communities, just like all other communities, are unique and complex places. This course offers an introductory exploration of rural realities through both data driven resources and methods of connecting with the heritage and heart of rural spaces. Special attention is given to understanding the complex layers of story and connection in rural spaces including class, gender, and race.
CRM102 Preaching and Teaching in the Rural ChurchDr. Jonathan LeMaster-SmithWednesday, 2-3:30pm, CST
Preaching and teaching in rural communities offers unique opportunities for blending heritage, culture, and story in creative ways. Preaching and Christian formation hold similar goals regardless of the context. However, this course offers practices for crafting worship and education in ways that can root themselves in the rural contexts we serve. Attention is given to worship and education as hope building, formal and informal formation opportunities, and how the community itself becomes part of the experience.
