Course Description

What a gift it is to be a part of the global, multicultural, multi-ethnic body of Christ!  Learning together across cultures and geographic contexts can be an indispensable source of wisdom, encouragement and mutual support as we face the challenges of responding to the global pandemic.  

This course is designed to help us realize this potential, turning our creedal statements about the unity and catholicity of the church into practices of mutual learning and encouragement. In the process, each of us—students, faculty, and global conversation partners—can become more self-aware about our own cultural formation and ministry contexts.  

In this course, we will engage communities in at least three continents through recorded and live online interviews and worship services, working together to develop skills and sensibilities for engaging in cross-cultural learning in just and healthy ways.

Series Description

Calvin Seminary is offering a series of new, short term online courses that are designed to support your ministry leadership amidst the ongoing pandemic. These online mini-courses are centered around key ministry challenges you face today.

With a commitment of four hours per week for just three weeks, each class is designed to fit alongside the many time demands and commitments that you already have. Though some courses may include optional live discussion online, you won't be required to be present for a session during a specific time. You can choose to audit the course or enroll for credit.
