Understanding the significant place and practice of prayer in the believer’s life, and the role of worship and spiritual warfare in making disciples of the nations are taught through lectures, discussions, and research projects. Practical application includes coordinating and leading prayer and worship.

Sexuality and Contemporary Thinking ( HMT 141 )

Thinking about sexuality through the biblical lens is also an exercise in understanding the Big Story (God's Story). Since Gen 3, man suffers from the expressions of the fall in his relationships, but this story does not begin with the fall and does not end with it. Our proposal with this training is to lead and equip the students in the study of sexuality from a biblical and Christocentric worldview. Mankind was made in the image and likeness of God (Gen 1.26), Christ delivered us from sin, death, and a life of slavery to our desires (Rom 1 and Rom 5), and invites us to walk with Him a path of daily sanctification, knowing the truth (1 Pet 15-16, John 17.17), and loving God above all things (Deut 11.1 and Matt 22.37). In times of fluidity, preaching this truth (the only and definitive truth) is counter-cultural, even within congregations and religious environments. Our role as the Church of Christ is to point the way to Redemption. This path must begin in the heart of man, where the gods and their commitments dwell. Our proposal with the training is to lead and equip the students in the study of sexuality from a biblical worldview. Discipleship on the path to sanctification. Sexuality is not a concept or a word, sexuality is relationship, it is identity, therefore, our issue is in the heart and our solution is in the cross of Christ.
