THE 303 Theology of Children, Youth and Family

This course will create a strong theological foundation for holistic discipling ministry with children, youth and families anywhere. Students will explore what the Bible teaches about families against the backdrop of the diversity and complexity of families in our broken world today. They will also critically examine a spectrum of positions on theological issues surrounding ministry with children, youth and their families such as salvation, baptism, spiritual formation and social justice. Throughout, students will be challenged to apply theological understanding to practical ministry challenges. (3 credits)
