PT 975 Personal Ministry Component 2 credits

This course is designed to help the student come to understand and love the local congregation even though it is imperfect.

Using the attributes of the Church as a guide and systems theory as a tool the student learns how to examine the multi-faceted elements of a congregation including its identity, context and boundaries and to comprehend why a church is greater than the sum of its parts. Graduating seniors begin to research the places they will be serving in preparation for transition to their new ministries.
