In order for the Church to extend the public witness of the Gospel into places where people have become isolated and marginalized, it is necessary for social justice workers to enter into community story. This course will equip students with a theological framework, alongside practical strategies and resources, to investigate issues that impact the dignity and well being of people within a given community context. Case studies will provide insights into methodology that informs community development enabling experiences of transformation that are shaped by sustainable hope for the future.
This is an online course with Dr. Julie Slous

The North American Church has a propensity to focus on the individual (whether on individual sin or individual holiness) to the relative neglect of the larger powers that shape and misshape persons, communities and society. As a result, people often end up looking for individual biographical solutions to systemic social problems or powers, both within our churches and our society.
In the first part of this course, participants will seek to understand some of the primary forces shaping our world – and thus shaping persons – including individualism, consumerism, globalization, social inequality and secularism. Participants will be introduced to a number of writers who offer insightful and systemic societal analysis of ‘the powers’. These powers will be studied within a framework of a kingdom theology that calls the Church as community located in a particular place to bear witness to the present and coming reign of God in all of its fullness. Participants will be invited to explore how they can form missional communities that resist these misshaping forces and bear witness to an alternative reality. They will also be asked to identify and reflect upon the practices that will sustain Christian communities for the long arc of God’s transforming and healing mission.
This doctoral course is taught be Dr. Tim Dickau at Carey Centre in the South Classroom January 12-16, 8:30-4:30pm.

The essential foundation of Christian ministry is one’s “character and call.” Skills, knowledge, ministry practices and spiritual gifts are built on this essential and personal core. The purpose of this course is to assist students in discerning their call to vocational Christian ministry (inside and outside of the church) and to explore with them the essential spiritual, familial, personality, emotional and character issues that enable a lifetime of faithfulness and enjoyment of Christian ministry. As such, the course serves to focus and strengthen the student in ministry / pastoral
ethics. Our learning will be highly personal, dialectic and discovery focused, where more than academic competency is required.
Character and Call is divided into 2 weeks and 2 courses (FORM 500 and FORM 501). There are no prerequisites to the class and students may choose to enroll in FORM 501 without having taken FORM 500. FORM 500 focuses on the shaping of the “Ministry Leader as Person.” FORM 501 focuses on the shaping of the “Health of the Minister and the Health of the Ministry.”
