Principles and Practices of Mentorship

Course Instructor: Marvin Brubacher

The foundational belief expressed in this course is that leaders develop leaders.  Often the emphasis is placed almost exclusively on formal educational systems to provide the means to reproduce leaders.  In some situations, leadership development happens more by default than by design.  In this course, the importance of mentoring will be discussed as a key ingredient in developing leaders, especially the kind of leaders who will lead like Jesus.  Leaders give several reasons for not mentoring potential leaders such as their busyness in ministry or a lack of knowing how to do it.  This course will offer a biblical foundation for mentoring, a challenging look at the heart of a mentor, some practical tips to help in one’s mentoring, and a survey of tools that are available to assist a leader in mentoring.

God's Mission and His Church

Course Instructors: Rev. Dr. Clint Mix and Trevor Seath

It's common to measure the success of a church in terms of the size of it's congregation, budget, or building. While these kinds of statistics provide insight into a church, they don't always reveal whether a congregation has been swept up into God's mission for their lives. What if we started to ask new questions? What if we looked carefully at our city to discover the opportunities to engage with our neighbours for Jesus' glory? What if we celebrated not only how many gathered on Sunday but also how many felt excited and equipped to join in God's mission in our everyday lives? What if we lived expecting to meet and work with God in every single nook and cranny of our routine? We've all had days like that - we all long for more! In this course we'll explore a biblical vision of the Church and experiment with new ways of thinking and living as God's people caught up in His mission. It will be a blast!
