Theological Integration Seminar

Offered in Fall 2011  ·  Previously offered in Fall 2010 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site
This course is based on the theological conviction that knowing the Triune God is inseparable from participating in a particular community and its practices—a participation which is the work of God’s Holy Spirit. We will examine the purpose of congregational life in light of our own discipleship and calls to leadership in ministry.  We will examine the purpose of building up congregations, discipleship making, worship, pastoral care and the pastoral offices of baptism (adult & children), weddings, and funerals.  Short lectures, class discussion. Grading is based on class participation, short assignments, quizzes and a final paper. Students take this course in conjunction with their field education placement.
