Description: In Disciple Formation 3, students will define and discuss issues of vocational holiness, behavioral addictions, trauma-informed practices, and the role of grace, in light of their formation as Christian disciples and ministers. Students will demonstrate their application of course content in their own lives and ministry through established methods of theological reflection, such as journaling; inquiry-based learning; and open and guided discussion in small groups facilitated by the instructor, either online or residentially. Students will formulate a rule of life incorporating practices of discipleship and self-care. Disciple Formation 3 is required for Master of Divinity students. Prerequisites include IN521 and IN522. All students are required to attend an overnight retreat at some point in the Fall semester, scheduled by them, in their local area. This is in lieu of the Formation Retreat that would normally occur during the August Residency.
