PT 501 Personal Formation and Development


This course helps the student develop a rule of life that fits their personality, season of life, and unique situation. It explores the nature and goal of spiritual formation, as well as examines our rich inheritance of spiritual practices from scripture and church history. The student will also be asked to undertake an intensive study of one biblical or historical figure in light of that indivual's spiritual formation (and, if warranted, deformation). Overall, the emphasis will be on the student cultivating increasing Christ-likeness expressed through their God-given personality.

Note: an additional fee for MBTI testing will apply. See the Financial Information section in the Academic Calendar for details.
