Course 1:  Kingdom, Church, World  (Monday, Wednesday, Saturday)
This course provides an opportunity to examine our presuppositions and commitments regarding the nature of the Kingdom of God and its relationship to the church and the world.  Thus we will be asking and attempting to answer some very basic questions: what is the Kingdom of God? What is the church? How does and how should the church engage the world? What do we mean when we speak of the “world”? We will address many additional questions because this introductory class attempts to open up topics in theology, biblical studies, ecclesiology, ethics, philosophy and mission.

Course 2:  Christian Leadership (Tuesday, Thursday, Sunday)
The course is designed to be highly interactive in the exploration of contemporary leadership principles in the light of biblical models and criteria for Christian leadership in ministry and mission.

Course 3:  Spiritual Formation (Friday, Saturday, Sunday)
The course is designed to be highly interactive, experiential, and contemplative in the exploration of historical and contemporary principles of Spiritual Formation as a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ.
