AT 610 - Practice of Pastoral Counseling 1
Dr. Ryan Davidson (3 ECTS)
All church leaders, especially pastors, are involved in the lives of people. To be involved in their lives means that they are also involved in their struggles and problems. For this reason, Tyndale offers a pastoral counseling course which teaches various theories, approaches, principles and techniques with the intent to help the student develop helping skills related to implementing a biblical approach to counseling. Common counseling problems are considered.
AT 610 meets only 5-9 January, 09:00-16:15
ST 710 - Ecclesiology
Dr. T. J. Marinello (3 ECTS)
In Matthew 16:18, the Lord Jesus said, “I will build my Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” So, what is this Church that the Lord promised to build? What does the Bible tell us about this Church? This class will provide an in-depth examination of the biblical doctrine of ecclesiology (the doctrine of the Church) primarily from Ephesians as well as an overview of ecclesiology as it developed from ancient to modern times. Students also will examine the four common forms of church government as well as the main views of the Lord’s Supper and Baptism.
ST 710 meets Monday-Friday, 13:15-16:15
ST 635 - Soteriology
Dr. Mel Loucks (3 ECTS)
This intensive course investigates the Christian doctrine of salvation together with the preparatory topics within theology of who can be saved (doctrine of humanity) and why salvation is necessary (doctrine of sin). Who does the saving (doctrines of God and of the person of Christ) and how salvation is made possible (doctrine of the work of Christ - the atonement) are treated in other courses in the Tyndale curriculum.
ST 635 meets Monday-Friday, 09:00-12:00
WE 515 - Multi-Cultural Evangelism
Dr. Jack Duckworth (3 ECTS)
This course is designed to equip the student for the ministry of cross-cultural evangelism, focusing particularly on sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with others. It will discuss the student’s faith life as a personal ongoing means to evangelism.
WE 515 meets Monday-Friday, 09:00-12:00
WE 855 - Urban Ministry
Rev. Robert Calvert (3 ECTS)
The world is more than 50% urban (Europe is 75%) and migration is impacting every country. The influence of urbanization and urbanism requires every pastor and missionary to be able to read the city and understand its global/local nature. This course offers an introduction to anthropological and sociological methods together with the creation of a biblical theology and missiology of the city.
The course will involve interviews and exposures to cross-cultural churches and mission projects in Rotterdam where the professor was a city-center minister. At the end of this course, every student will be able to outline a basic biblical theology of the city, articulate about urban issues such as poverty and pluralism, and be able to apply demographics and practical research methods to create an effective urban mission strategy.
WE 855 meets Mondays and Tuesdays, 13:15-16:15
Plus all-day field experiences: Wednesday 21 & Sunday 25
AT 630 - Marriage & Family
Dr. Cecil Stalnaker (3 ECTS)
Since Christianity is based in many ways on godly and sound families, it is important that Christian leaders in the local church have a good grasp of the biblical and theological understanding of marriage and family issues.
In order to equip them to better help the families in their churches, this course is centered around three aspects specifically related to ministry: (1) biblical and theological definitions of marriage and family; (2) views on marriage and divorce, homosexuality; (3) a study of the Scriptures and their application in relation to pastoral counseling in reference to marriage and divorce, marital preparation, homosexuality, singleness, sexuality, child rearing and parental guidance.
AT 630 meets Monday-Friday, 09:00-12:00
WE 672 - Preaching Christ in a Postmodern Culture
Rev. Kieran Beville (3 ECTS)
The way reality is perceived and explained has changed enormously over the last half century, greatly impacting European and Western societies. Postmodernism has arisen in reaction to the perceived shortcomings of modernism, and as a product of developments in the philosophy of language and science, sociology, and the arts. Theology has been deeply impacted by this postmodern shift. Although postmodernism has helped the contemporary world critically examine itself, it is not without its dangers.
WE 672 meets Monday - Friday, 13:15-16:15
MM 635 - Exegeting Culture
Dr. Charles Davis (3 ECTS)
This course focuses on gaining a greater skill to understand and minister in one’s own culture by understanding that culture better and more deeply. The goal is to equip the student to be able to offer a contextualized ministry and theology for their own setting (whether it is pastoral ministry and preaching, evangelism, church planting or various parachurch ministries).
