Campus and Young Adult Ministry, Winter 2013
Many religious leaders view younger adults as the most difficult population to reach. What does faith development theory, enlivened by the experiences of leaders in campus and parish ministry, have to offer those seeking to connect with men and women in this fast-changing phase of the adult lifespan? Through theoretical study, personal reflection, interaction with campus and parish ministers, and site visits to settings where young adults gather, this course will introduce students to the theory and practice of ministering to younger adults in campus and parish settings. Students must be prepared for one day off-campus, using Boston public transportation (at the student’s expense) to visit ministry sites in Cambridge. Only with special permission from the instructor and an additional assignment, students may take this course to meet the Religious Education distributional requirement.
Winter - Winter Session II, 2013 – January 14-25, 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
