Personal and Spiritual Formation for Christian Ministry
SEMESTER 1 2024
Wednesday Daytime Unit
PC076-612/712/812 + PC205-912 + PC206-912
Powerful cultural forces seek to form our desires and choices. A pivotal biblical text insists, “Do not be conformed … be transformed”. How are we formed? Counter-formed? Transformed … for faithful living, godly ministry, wise leadership?
This unit delves into formational practices for disciples of Christ who long to make a difference in churches, workplaces, and families. We will explore human identity, self-care, conflict, power dynamics, stress, burnout, spiritual warfare, addictive patterns, complex relationships, and so much more.
