1006 – Foundations of Theology (1 Unit)

Thursdays PM

Spring 2021

April 15 - June 3, 2021

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This course provides a general overview of elements of theology that are foundational and formative in the life of Christian ministry leaders at the lay and clergy level. It will engage students in major themes that shape ministry and Christian formation in a manner consistent with the Holiness and relational stream of thinking that forms the identity of the Rock Church.

“Understanding the nature of theological inquiry will help anchor the Christian leader — lay and clergy — in a personal and church identity that will shape and guide ministry engagement with confidence. To know the roots of one’s identity provides clarity and effectiveness in every ministry and outreach that will naturally flow from it.” -Dr. Kevin Mannoia

What others are saying about RSOM:

I thank RSOM for providing this learning opportunity to go deeper within the word and closer to God's heart. It has allowed me to set a committed time to spend with Christ and deepen my purpose with Him. God bless you all. I look forward to more opportunities to learn more about Christ.

Satisfaction can only be found in God's faithfulness; Not money, success, position, friends, family, education, nothing in this world can give that to you. In these uncertain times this couldn't be more true! I feel like God highlighted this in my life and now I will implement it in everything I do.
