This course offers critical and practical engagement with why and how Christian faith can be shared while honoring the distinctiveness of others. We will explore the theologies and practices that guide evangelism in modern/postmodern contexts. This course includes practical tools for thinking about who an organization is trying to reach, how to determine the makeup of a given geographic area, and what sorts of engagement will work with them. We will also explore the theological heritage of Methodism as it pertains to the overall aims of the course (other options will be considered for students of other faith traditions - please contact Tom for more information). This course is designed to meet Iliff's revised interpretation of requirements for UM ordination.
