M9695WMM Issues in Women's Missional Ministry
- Unit Code & NameM9695WMM Issues in Women's Missional Ministry
- DescriptionWomen do have different perspectives on leadership and ministry than men. This is an advanced study unit in which we examine these perspectives together and read a diverse range of in-depth studies which explore how women successfully negotiate the challenges they face. (This unit is not a study on how to make women feel good in ministry. It focuses on research about women in different contexts, mostly conducted and written by women.)
This graduate course unit provides students with an opportunity to focus, at an advanced level, on the Issues in Women's Missional Ministry within a discipline or subdiscipline that is not available elsewhere in the curriculum. The particular topic might include: an examination of contemporary themes or current issues in the discipline; exploration of developments in research and theory; a consideration of the implications of developments in research and theory to a broad range of issues of current concern to Christian life, ministry or theology; an opportunity to learn new theories and skills and to apply them in practical or simulated circumstances.
