Our spiritual formation courses are designed to support the CBS discipleship initiative. It our heartfelt desire that every student’s CBS experience is not merely an academic endeavor, but a transformational encounter with our Lord Jesus Christ and the Great Commission He calls all of us to carry out! (Matt 28:19-20; 2 Tim 2:2).

Spiritual Formation 4 (MSSF 4034)

MSSF 4034 is the fourth and capstone in a series of courses designed to help the student engage in the Four Dimensions of the CBS Discipleship Journey. This course completes the journey and assesses the progress made along the journey. It continues the small group participation launched in MSSF 3033 and seeks to bring that experience to a conclusion with each student preparing a Ministry Vision Statement. This course will engage the student in the development of two critical skills for ministry in a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic world—namely, how to graciously navigate diverse cultures and how to be rightly involved in race relations. Students will study material prepared by Dr. Charles Ware and Grace Relations as they prepare to disciple the nations in fulfillment of the Great Commission.

Christian Service Learning Program (MCSP 2011)
