Full course description
This 8-week course is intended to be the first course in the Truett Seminary Certificate Program, and is suitable for laypeople, church leaders, and ministers of all types, including church pastors.
This course is on the subject of Spiritual Formation: the basic process by which Christians are formed spiritually. Including practices and understandings that can help Christians grow closer to God and to live out their faith more vibrantly.
An optional focus for participants is a biblical study of the "Kingdom of God” in Matthew and Luke.
This is an introductory course, and the first of the Certificate Program’s six core courses.
For this course students will require a copy of the following book:

Within the Certificate Program, this should be considered a relatively easy course.
