Courses at AMBS

MTS students may wish to take an online course through Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary. We'd like to highlight two courses specifically:

Course ID Course name & description Instructor Term
CHM531E

Human Development & Christian Formation

This course gives students both tools and impetus to reflect on their own Christian formation and human development as well as the impact of Christian formation and human development in ministry with others by 1) understanding human development and Christian formation in an interdisciplinary perspective; 2) identifying and working with issues and experiences from the past which may hinder human development and Christian formation; 3) exploring the role of spiritual disciplines in fostering ongoing Christian formation; and 4) reflecting theologically on Christian formation and human development in culturally sensitive and nuanced ways.

A. B. Kaethler Fall 2017
BIB503E

Introduction to Bible Study Tools

In this course students will learn the Greek and Hebrew alphabets and how to use study aids and research tools based in the original biblical languages. They also will be oriented to basic exegetical methodologies. Using print and computer-assisted Bible study programs, students will cultivate skills needed when studying the Bible in preparation for preaching and teaching in the congregation.

TBA Winter 2018

If you're interested in taking one of these courses, please contact your advisor.
