History of Christianity in Africa

This course will examine the history, mission dynamics, and changing
demographics of the African church. Beginning with biblical reflections, the
study will highlight the expansion of the African Christian movement, the
impact of the Western colonial encounter, contextualized forms of the faith,
and issues facing the church today. Students can choose to examine particular issues such as interfaith conversations, the African-initiated churches, women’s
roles, worship trends, or the holistic witness of the church.

CHM531E

Human Development and 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 that 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.
Rachel Miller Jacobs Fall 2019

This is the basic course in the Old Testament exegesis sequence. It prepares
