Ministry Focus

Theological Education

Theology is more than a required course at a Christian college—theology is life or death for a new church on the mission field. Worldwide, about 85 percent of the approximately 2.2 million evangelical churches are led by pastors with no formal theological education. In such environments, including many places where oral learning is the norm, a lack of a solid biblical foundation can open the door to prosperity heresy, syncretism, and outright apostasy.

Seminars:

Understanding by Design for Theological Education

SEMINAR DESCRIPTION

Learn to design courses that focus on using knowledge in the real world. Understanding by Design is a course design framework that emphasizes identifying and then helping students uncover the understandings that make knowledge useful in life.

Seminar participants learn to:

  1. identify the desired results required by their objectives
  2. develop assessments that provide evidence students have attained these results
  3. design instructional experiences that guide students as they:
    • figure out principles (understandings) that connect knowledge into useful models
    • cultivate automaticity of recall on essential knowledge and skills
    • deal effectively with real life tasks and problems

This is an interactive seminar in which you will design a course as you learn the UbD principles.


Program Design for Theological Education

SEMINAR DESCRIPTION

Learn to design “competency” based ministry training programs.

You will learn how to develop programs that prepare people for specific areas of ministry. Using a competency based approach, you will be able to outline the path (a series of courses) a person must follow to develop the abilities needed for that ministry. This is a great tool for institutional and local church based programs.

Is God calling you to use your skills on the mission field?
