This course looks at Christian ministry across the lifespan. It aims to (a) increase understanding of the human lifespan by drawing upon insights from theology, psychology, and neuroscience; and (b) help student do ministerial activities and address spiritual issues pertaining to each stage of life. Most written assignments are geared toward practical activities of pastoral ministry. Students who are focused on nontraditional ministry, or on non-ministerial activities, are welcome to reconceive these assignments in consultation with the professor.
