Spiritual Formation Certificate Module 1: Introduction to Spiritual Formation: Knowing God, Knowing Myself

Event Date(s): Sat, 2019/09/28 - 9:00am to 3:00pm
Event Type: Tyndale Spiritual Formation Centre

John Calvin wrote that wisdom “consists almost entirely of two parts: the knowledge of God and of ourselves.” An introduction to spiritual formation can best begin by learning more about ourselves. In this module, we will take a look at our God-given talents, learned skills, spiritual gifts, and personalities, so that we can know how God has designed us to serve. We will undertake three inventories in preparation for this module: a spiritual gift inventory, a ‘sacred pathways’ evaluation, and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (R). When you register for this certificate program you will be contacted by the instructor with information about completing these inventories ahead of the class. 

Please note: To cover the cost of the inventories, there will be an additional charge of $25. Instead of $125 for the module, it will be $150 for this first module.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand the various ways God equips us in life and ministry
  • Discover how gifting and personality preferences come together to make each one’s spiritual formation journey different
  • Appreciate that there are different ways that people connect most easily with God.
