EDOE 301 - Outdoor Ministries (SERV-2)

3 hours

This course sharpens students’ skill in connecting people with God through nature. Three areas of focus are emphasized: 1) Ministry skills (such as leading spiritual nature activities, oral presentations, group facilitation, active listening, etc.) 2) Spiritual development (such as personal spiritual growth, interpreting and designing object lessons, experiencing wilderness as a place of spiritual transformation, etc.) and 3) Understanding of the natural world (such as plant and animal identification, understanding theories of origin, increased observational skills, etc). Students will gain practical outdoor ministry experience through networking with area schools, churches, and community programs.
