This course, taught by Douglas Hardy and Judith Schwanz at Nazarene Theological Seminary, enables new students to examine and strengthen their core relationships for Christian ministry—with self, with others, and with God. Through deepened self-understanding, increased capacity for love of others, and adoption of personal & professional disciplines, students are equipped to become whole and holy persons for ministry. Within the framework of a pastoral theology of the Church, the course provides instruction and guidance for discernment of ministerial callings (vocation), and formulation of a Rule of Life and Philosophy of Ministry.
