Preaching from the Minor Prophets - 3.00 Hours

NOTE: Registration for this course will be open from November 1 – December 15. Preaching from the Minor Prophets is often neglected by the church. The reasons for this neglect are complex and complicated. Part of the problem, of course, is the church’s difficulty in seeing the application of OT prophetic texts that appear to be so strange and esoteric. How do pastors make such teachings meaningful and relevant to their congregations? Another aspect of the problem is that for almost two hundred years OT scholarship has focused on issues of criticism, that is, questions of dating and authorship. In addition, many pastors seem to center their preaching ministry in the NT in which they feel they are really getting at the heart of the Christian message. Finally, one of the greatest parts of the problem is the reality that many pastors simply do not know how to preach the OT. Thus, in the church today there seems to be a general malaise or stupor when it comes to preaching the OT. In this course, we will focus on the means and methods of preaching texts from the Minor Prophets. These texts can be most challenging and difficult to interpret and to preach, but they can also provide wonderful, in-depth teaching and theology when appropriately understood.

The Pastor as Prophet - 3.00 Hours

NOTE: Registration for this course will be open from November 1 – December 15. In his Reformed Dogmatics Herman Bavinck draws attention to the work of the Preaching office of the church and draws a parallel with the prophetic office within Israel. What defines the role of preaching within the covenant community? What does it mean to be a covenant prosecutor in the church today? How does the preacher address corporate sin within the Body of Christ? This course examines the biblical, theological and historical basis of considering the pastor as prophet in the church today. Participants will also preach sermons from texts notable for their “prophetic” edge.

Theology of John Webster - 2.00 Hours

REGISTRATION OF THIS COURSE MUST BE COMPLETED BY JUNE 6th. This is a HYBRID COURSE that will incorporate e-learning components prior to the on-campus class dates. Course activities start the week of June 6th.

This course involves a close study of the writings of John Webster. Students grow in their ability to read his texts directly and to appreciate the systematic framework of his thought more broadly. In viewing his work closely and broadly alike, its relationship to other theologians is examined, beginning with his early work on modern Protestant theology and moving through to his later, extended engagement of early fathers, medieval doctors, and post-Reformation Reformed scholastics. His practice of theology is examined with respect to various doctrines (e.g. God, covenant, church) as well as with respect to its underlying methodological approach to “theological theology” as an exercise in “biblical reasoning.”

Counseling & Helping Relationship Skills - 3.00 Hours

Prerequisite: Orlando: Admission to the MAC program.
This course provides systematic training in fundamental helping skills, i.e., active listening, essential interviewing, case-conceptualization, and consultation skills. Course content will centrally focus on both (1) an evidence-based, three-stage model of behavior change and the rudimentary helping skills incorporated in that model and, (2) an evidence-based understanding of effective counselor behavioral characteristics. Course concepts and skills will be considered, critiqued, and utilized from the perspective of a biblical worldview. Also, these helping skills and effective counselor behaviors will be considered in terms of both face-to-face and technology-assisted helping relationships. Core ethical issues (confidentiality, therapist competence, client consent, collaboration, and multicultural competence) will be introduced commensurate with topics and skills addressed.

Preaching from Luke/Acts - 3.00 Hours

NOTE: REGISTRATION FOR THIS COURSE IS OPEN FROM APRIL 1 - MAY 15 Preaching Luke and Acts is both challenging and rewarding. The challenges stem from the length of Luke and Acts, and from the hermeneutical challenges posed by each book (“Do miracles happen today?” “Should Christians speak in tongues?”). The rewards stem from the main concern of each book – the person and work of Jesus Christ. In this course, we will think about how to interpret, explain, and apply these two books in a way that keeps Christ central to our preaching and teaching ministries

Interpreting Scripture/Great Tradition - 3.00 Hours

NOTE: REGISTRATION FOR THIS COURSE IS OPEN FROM APRIL 1 - MAY 15 Since modern historical study of the Bible has created problems for preaching that did not exist before modernity, we need to recover models of premodern interpretation. The purpose of this course is to examine how church fathers from the first five centuries interpreted the Psalms and Isaiah and to reflect on what we can learn from them. We will read background material on the history of interpretation and discuss the writings of figures like Irenaeus, Origen, Athanasius, Cyril of Alexandria and Augustine.
