Courses Offered:

Pentecostal History - William Sloos

This course charts the development of the Pentecostal movement from its origins in the Holiness movement of the nineteenth century to the present. It is intended to provide students with an understanding of the Pentecostal faith and of the Pentecostal movement of today.

Live Production Design - Kelly Kimo

Live sound, video, lighting and streaming are becoming more prevalent in the design of worship services. This course will provide useful information and instruction related to the technical elements of worship arts ministry. There will be time for hands-on learning about how to use these technologies. Upon completion of this course, students will have general knowledge of key areas of ministry technology as well as a sense of its appropriate use in today’s church.

Biblical Language Usage - Rev. Vadim Yarchenko

This course is a basic introduction to the biblical languages—Greek and Hebrew—and to the tools with which the student can study the Scriptures more effectively. Beginning with an appreciation for the nature and challenges of working with the original languages of our Scriptures, the student will be equipped with the skills necessary for the proper use of language and interpretive tools such as concordances, lexicons, word-studies, critical commentaries, and computer software. In addition to learning the Hebrew and Greek alphabets, a basic introduction to the grammar and vocabulary of each, a comprehensive walk through of the Logos Library System is undertaken. An essential part of the course is the integration of language tools with the preparation of Bible studies and sermons.

Contextualization - Dr. Jeremy Feller

Recognizing that the majority of the world’s unreached people are locked behind religiously defined cultural barriers, the course will present principles for presenting Christ into varied contextual realities. This course focuses on critically engaging world religions and relating the gospel message and biblical theology across diverse cultures. It examines the process of exploring the existing cultural and theological framework and developing a biblical presentation of Christ relevant to the culture and religion individuals encounter while serving in world mission. It seeks to equip students to faithfully study the scriptures while engaging in theology in a global context. The course will prepare students to respond to theological issues that influence our global community where the Mission of God is needed.

Missional Vitality Community Engagement - Rev. Mark MacKnight

This course begins with the understanding that the church is to exist with upward, inward, and outward orientations. Upward speaks to our relationship with God, inward is our relationship with one another, and outward is the relationship with our neighbours. For a local expression of the church to be healthy, all three of these orientations need to be embraced and yet history often shows that there can be a disconnect or neglect in how we are reaching out to our world. This course will focus extensively on the outward, the call to go into all the world and make disciples, with the intention to equip Christ followers to personally engage their neighbours and neighbourhoods.

Through class lectures reading, field trips, guest presenters and assignments, students will have the opportunity to explore strategies, initiatives, partnerships and practices that facilitate that outward orientation. Emphasis will be placed on ensuring that the church is committed to a posture of being empowered and led by the Holy Spirit, believing that God has already gone before us  and is at work in our communities.
