The Certificate in Theology & Discipleship for Mission helps you to develop your understanding of God's call in your life. Through in-depth study of the Gospel of Mark, theological reflection, and personal engagement with the materials, guests, and teachers, you will gain deeper knowledge of what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ, how others have made that journey in mission, and how the Spirit is leading you in the Way of Christ.
There will be:
sharing of ideas and experiences, articles and resources to read & books to explore.
speakers telling how their faith has led them into different sorts of mission of word and deed.
monthly assignments, designed to help you on your journey.
We will meet by Zoom every other Monday, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. for a total of 15 sessions over the course of the year. We will not meet during the holidays.
Work is not marked. Feedback from other students as well as the course leaders, is given about the ideas presented, and further reading or points that might help you develop your own understanding.
“The respect we have had for each other has been a real blessing, because it has felt like a completely safe space to share thoughts, questions, doubts and fears”.
