Reformed Christian Spirituality Focus
The purpose of this focus is one of discovering and recovering spiritual formation and practices. Therefore, such study is approached through the lens of both a biblical and theological concentration that educates the mind and is inclusive of experience and emotion. Such a spirituality within the reformed tradition claims a core identity that deepens worship, prayer, and piety. In a culture that seeks spirituality, the emphasis of the focus is both a discovery and recovery process that addresses the pastor as person, the depth and purposefulness of tradition, and the function and place of authority and proclamation. Spirituality is a deep hunger in the church and in society, and this focus will seek to offer fresh dialogue for pastoral identity, formation, ecclesiology and leadership.
Students are required to work with a Spiritual Director during the entire program. Seminars are schedule both as one- and two-week seminars, depending on the course of study. Final Projects can include creative work in additional to a final paper.
