PRM 102 - Applied Practical Ministry: Encounter

Applied Practical Ministry is designed to provide students with multiple opportunities to apply and practice ministry skills in private and in public. The main goal is to teach the relationship between private ministry habits and the success of public ministry. This course is highly participatory and contains very little class room time, but still requires the practice of academic skills like memorization, reading, journaling and public speaking.

Taught by Gary Stevenson

BTH 205 - The Theology and Practice of Prayer

This course is a broad examination of various theological definitions of prayer including: prayer as communion with God, a place of encounter with God, a means to receive blessing, and a means of partnership with God. It includes a brief survey of some of the practices of prayer throughout church history and provides an opportunity to practice and participate in the forms of prayer discussed. All assignments are designed to encompass development in both personal prayer and devotion in leading corporate prayer within the church and the marketplace.

Taught by Graham Beke
