Practical Theology Area

general-tile-19PRACTICAL THEOLOGY AREA studies consider the dynamics of the minister’s role as pastor, evangelist, leader of worship, preacher, teacher, counselor, and administrator. The Practical Theology Area encompasses the areas of worship, preaching, pastoral care, Christian education, Church leadership, and Evangelism. These studies seek to train students to see their own strengths and weaknesses, and then to develop a flexibility that will enable them to take their biblical and theological understanding and deal with whatever issues they face during their ministry. Courses offered in this area are introductory courses to worship, preaching, pastoral care, Christian Education, and Church leadership, as well as variety of electives in each of these areas (Worship Through the Phases of Life: Occasional Services, Prophetic Imaginative Preaching for God’s Changing World, Death, Dying, and Bereavement, The Spiritual Lives of Children, The Art of Reading Congregations, and Evangelism as Videography: Story as Witness and Outreach).
