THEO 6735: The Ministry of Teaching (2024-2025)

View all THEO classes

Ministry leaders play a critical role in forming the faith of those in their ministry. The formation of Christian identity takes place in both formal and informal teaching ministries of the church. Formal moments include baptism, the Lord’s Supper, Sunday school, confirmation, children’s messages, Bible studies, youth group, retreats, and camps. Other informal, but still formative educational moments include the ways the community embodies its beliefs through serving the community, educating the public, and participating in local civic life. In this class, students will identify, evaluate, and create learning goals for the teaching ministry in their setting. Students will gain skills in culturally responsive teaching methods. Students will also grow in their understanding of human development that will help them create age-appropriate learning experiences for the entire lifecycle. Typically offered: Alternate Years.
