‘Philosophy of ministry’ or ‘ministry framework’ describes how you apply your theological principles to the issues you face. This course allows you to identify a philosophy of ministry that reflects your current church community, your missional context, and your theological or denominational distinctives.
Set aside 2-3 hours per week to read, reflect and pray your way through this Foundation Course.
Each lesson includes
- Insightful articles on Bible passages, doctrine and application
- Instructional videos and commentaries
- Interactive reflection boxes to make and store your notes
