Course Description

A study of the principles, philosophies, objectives, methods, and importance of Christian education.

Students will be exposed to different learning methods and identify the importance of their own education and the need to transmit what they have learned to others.

Course Rational

Christian education seeks to equip leaders for lives of Christian service, in the pursuit of knowledge and the development of Christian character. How people learn tends to be universal and cross-cultural, but how people teach tends to be deeply cultural and not always effective. This course will help challenge and improve pastors’ view of the way people learn and make them more effective in teaching others how to teach as well as in their own teaching and preaching.

Intended Course Outcomes through Engagements

Students will show growth in the following ways:

  1. Character Formation: Recognize what the Bible says about education and how to implement this in family, life, and ministry.
  2. Content Processing with Peers: Determine best teaching methodologies and content for a given context.
  3. Ministry Capability Development: Discover and implement ways to “teach” believers in discipleship as Jesus commanded in Matthew 28:19-20.
  4. Application in Mission and Community: Determine good teaching methodologies that impact people in the community.
