I will be teaching this course
Change in Spiritual-Formation Communities
Spiritual formation is the task of the church.
Christian spiritual formation may be understood as a three-stranded process of
person-in-formation (Christ-likeness in the inner being), persons-in-community
formation (becoming a people of God), and persons-in-mission formation (being
missional for Kingdom expansion). The biblical, theological and psychosocial
aspects will be developed. The approach to faith formation is never
individualistic but communal. The contemporary discipleship and faith formation
models will be examined. A Christian spiritual formation paradigm which
includes the role of the faith community, and spiritual-formation elements will
be introduced. Leadership to effect transition to spiritual-formation
communities will be considered in the context of local faith communities. This
is a 4 credits course.
The expected general outcome of this course is that students
will demonstration deeper understanding of spiritual formation, spiritual
formative elements in the context of their faith communities, and nurturing
spiritual formation communities (SFC).
By the end of the course it is expected that students
will specifically demonstrate:
enlarged knowledge base:
capacity to discern effective formative elements in the context of their faith
deeper understanding of the dynamics of spiritual formation communities
