Eight Weeks of Learning in Community: Understanding the Scope of Perspectives and Ministry in MAiD


ACTS Students taking PTH 692 – Understanding the Scope of Perspectives and Ministry in MAiD (Medical Assistance in Dying) will have the option to lead an extended group from your church or faith community to participate in the course. The topics addressed surrounding MAiD are critical to face as Christ-followers, and we hope this will prove a valuable opportunity to broaden the reach of seminary education.

Participants will increase awareness of patient, family, and healthcare worker perspectives and build skills for coming alongside. The understanding of Scripture, theological and denominational positions on MAiD will be considered as one develops a nuanced perspective.


Eight weeks (January 4 - February 27, 2021). See more below.
