Framing a Theology of Prophetic Urban Ministry

In this course, students will begin to lay the foundation for an integral, liberating, and transformative theology of prophetic urban ministry.

In this course, taught by Janice McLean-Farrell at New Brunswick Theological Seminary, students will begin to lay the foundation for an integral, liberating, and transformative theology of prophetic urban ministry through interdisciplinary reading and critical reflection, along with on-the-street engagement of contemporary events. An examination of 21st-century urban contexts and ministry strategies employed in these contexts will also be explored, particularly in light of the biblical injunction to “seek the welfare of the city.”
