Senior Colloquium: Encouraging the Knowledge of God

Offered in Winter 2013  ·  Previously offered in Winter 2012 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

This course will serve to integrate all that has preceded in the MDiv program. A diagnostic examination of the whole required curriculum will identify an area needing attention in the last term of study, and in this area the student will work in a weekly one-on-one tutorial with a professor. In addition the whole class will meet in five colloquia which will address issues in ministry calling for the marshalling of biblical, theological, and pastoral insights. A tutorial and a colloquium paper will be required. The issues dealt with in the latter will focus on deploying within the pastorate the major areas of theological formation: Scripture, Theology, History, Worship, Mission. The construction of working bibliographies of/for the active ministry, with respect to these areas, will be a part of this process. Evaluation will be based on engaged participation, the competion of assignments, and the colloquium paper. Restricted to Wycliffe M.Div. students.

Offered in Fall 2012  ·  Previously offered in Summer 2012 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site
