Course Description (highlights on our journey) "The Pastor and Christian Discipleship" points us in several directions (which is appropriate, since pastors and Christian educators are usually running in about a dozen on any given day). We’ll look at roles and responsibilities of the pastor or Christian education minister in the teaching and learning ministries of the church. You can anticipate navigating through biblical, theological, and social science models of teaching, learning, and faith developing. Lay ministers (volunteers) require nurturing, training, and guiding. Their involvement and your support of their discipleship ministries are crucial in the faith community, so we’ll turn our hearts and minds in that direction as well. Throughout our travels together, you will construct and/or refine your own understanding of teaching or discipleship ministry, one that focuses both on Christian and education.
