CHP 611 - Ministry in Multifaith Environments

3 Credits

Offered every other year

The ministry of the Christian Church is expanding and opportunities have been presented for ministry that is delivered in public domains and that is supported by public sector grants. It is therefore important for Christian ministers and chaplains to understand how to be credible witnesses while working with established external standards in public multi-faith environments. This course will help students understand and address the challenges of pastoral ministry in a multi-faith environment. Students will explore other religions and discover ways of coming alongside of a religious ‘other’ in pastoral ministry.
