CM 600 Spiritual Formation for Ministry

  Find Jesus in your day to day - spend time with Him, listen for Him, be loved by Him; then, out of that space, minister. 

Teaching Philosophy

We learn from each other as we gather around a subject, listening for the voice of God – the gentle guiding of the Spirit, the compassion of Jesus, the love of the Father – as it can be heard in each of us. Learning then becomes more than just about information; it becomes an exercise in transformation – involving intellect, affection, and will.

Background

I have over 20 years of ministry experience both in the local church and parachurch ministries. I discovered part way through my vocational ministry experience the crucial importance of my own personal spiritual health and vitality. This led me to an emphasis on a personal, lived Christian spirituality and vocationally to the founding of Renovaré Canada. I presently serve as the executive director of Renovaré Canada and as an Associate Pastor at First Baptist Church in Regina, SK.

The way Briercrest Seminary set up the distance learning was convenient for my life circumstances, and never hindered the amount of learning and community I would have experienced being on campus full time.
