Description: This course provides theological and educational frameworks for Christian formation, which prepare students for the pursuit of character and professional skill development in mentored formation. Students discern, develop, manage and reflect upon their own unique learning experience in various contexts of their life with God. The tools provided equip students to integrate and pursue intentional, whole-life growth and to influence others to do the same. Students prepare for TM501 and beyond by honing their ability to engage and sustain mentors, write customized learning plans and engage in theological reflection.
