MM101A-OL : Vocation, Work & Ministry: Theology of Work (1.5 Credit)
Academic Year : all year round
About this course
This course aims to help students answer some key questions:
1. What is God doing in the world?
2. How do we, as the people of God, fit into His plan, and how does our daily work matter to the Kingdom?
3. How am I to steward all of who I am, and how can I live it out practically in every area of my life?
Through lectures and interviews, small group interaction and personal reflection, this course will help the participant better understand the context of God’s design for us, the Bible’s teaching on work and vocation, so that they can learn to see seamlessly between daily work and the other areas of their lives.
